Churton: Return from the Primitive Methodist chapel to the 1851 Census of Places of Public Religious Worship
transcribed by David Tonks

Churton is in South Cheshire and was part of the Runcorn circuit. The Primitive Methodist chapel was established in 1832 and was used for worship until 1993. Following 1993, the chapel became a house and the inscription on the chapel wall can still be read on the house; “My House Shall be Called a House of Prayer for all People” (Isaiah 56.7).

The Return from Churton Primitive Methodist chapel to the 1851 Census of Places of Public Religious Worship shows average attendances of 40 in the afternoon services and 60 in the evening ones.  There was an active Sunday school

  • The chapel has not been substantially altered, although it now has only two pews and its delightful pulpit. The owner still has two marble plaques which were inside the chapel. One for Charles Ball, who died aged 91 in 1925 after 50 years of service as a class leader and local preacher. The other commemorates the service of Edward Clubbe, who died aged 87 in 1929.
