The 1851 Census of Places of Public Religious Worship of March 1851 contains a report for a Primitive Methodist preaching place in Christian Malford . The report was completed by Thomas Taylor, a local preacher.
The society met in a dwelling house and 34 met in both the afternoon and evening services. The building was said to be erected on March 2nd 1834 – was that when it was first used for preaching?
Interestingly the village name is written as xtian Malford.
