Seacombe Primitive Methodist Church
In 1923, the PM Conference Handbook described Seacombe as, ‘a church with a future’. It continued, ‘The first church was erected in 1868 and the present school-church in 1907. It has a membership of over 300 and nearly 600 scholars and the main church building is being anticipated.’
The postcard opposite is fascinating, as it shows a church that was never built! It clearly shows the original architect’s design for the new building in 1907. Tantalisingly, someone has written ‘As it was first designed but the actual building is quite different’.
