The upper picture is certainly of a church which is thriving with God's blessing. For those interested here is our web page: http://www.grapevinecommunitychurch.org/ If you attended the chapel in the past or have an interest in the history of Illogan churches feel free to drop in - perhaps share a coffee and a chat on a Friday morning, you are sure to be welcomed with a smile!

We are truly delighted to see these pictures of Grapevine Community Church on this website. We value and appreciate the Primitive Methodist history of this chapel and the communities of worshippers who were there before us. Thank you for your prayers and vision. We would be most grateful to receive any information and photographs which enable us to describe and celebrate this rich history. Please do let us know at: gccoffice@btinternet.com or drop in and say hello!

For a current potted history of the chapel, follow this link. Its a project on going so we would love to hear from anyone with information. As Wendy has said, its a thriving chapel. Having closed in the 1990's, the local Apostolic congregation took it on with support from Redruth Baptist Church, before passing to Grapevine Community Church. The original chapel (which was wood) opened in 1859, and the present chapel followed in 1887 and extended shortly afterwards. Famous persons connected are Richard TANGYE (of TANGYE Bros. Engineers) and Thomas MERRITT (Composer). I believe the site celebrates 155 years in 2014.
