Wolverhampton Primitive Methodist chapel

opening in 1833

By Christopher Hill

The 1835 Primitive Methodist magazine contains an account by J Blower, the Secretary of the Primitive Society, of the opening of a chapel in Wolverhampton. It was in the Darlaston circuit.

The opening services were held on October 27th and 28th 1833.  The Sunday services were conducted by Mr R Hill and  Rev R Roaf, an Independent Minister, and on the Monday by Mr J Hutchinson and Rev J Pool.

By the second Sunday there were 200 scholars in the Sunday school. In November 1834 Hugh Bourne visited the school and from this visit he developed a scheme of instruction which was adopted "with amazing success".

Where was this chapel and what happened to it?
