The 1881 Primitive Methodist magazine contains a note of the opening of a new Primitive Methodist chapel at East Ham in the London Eighth circuit,
It is described as “an excellent temporary chapel” and the whole cost had been raised.
This is the first note I have seen in all the Primitive Methodist magazine accounts of chapel openings for a temporary chapel. What’s the story?
We are told that interest was rising in the London Eighth station under the superintendency of Rev RS Blair. They had spent over £10,000 on chapel building and improvement over the previous six years, much of which had been raised.
