Stone Street Gravesend

By Christopher Hill

The Primitive Methodist magazine for June 1857 contains an account  by John Vaughan of the renovation of Gravesend Stone Street Primitive Methodist chapel.  On Good Friday 1857 the annual tea meeting focussed on raising money for an intended new chapel.  Sermons were preached by TB Butcher, C Carpenter ( Wesleyan), G Mitchell, J Davies and W Wells.  "Female friends came forward nobly with their collectings."  Mr W Wells presented the society with a clock for the new chapel.

The Stone Street chapel had been closed for repainting and renovation.  Since then congregations increased.
