  • St Ives Fore Street Methodist. chapel is as it describes itself a one chapel Methodist circuit and is a thriving and active church within the town.
    It was one of several Methodist chapels ( of all various types) in St Ives which were the first Methodist circuit in Cornwall from the early days of the Wesley’s outreach, and  centre of revival and outreach in the early 19th Century in West Cornwall and together with St Ives Bible Christian Methodist Chapel   are the remaining chapels of this once very active hub of Methodism . The chapels web site has a history link on its web site to its Primitive Methodist links along with a link to a written history of the chapel and Methodists in St Ives….valuable in research the Bible Christian chapel has a history link which over laps, by local Methodist historian JCC Probert..again valuable research of the BC chapel submitted to My Bible Christian site.
