Old Kent Road, Bermondsey

South East London MIssion based at St George's Hall
postcard from Steve Wild

The postcard shows a number of views of St George’s Hall and the work of the South East London Mission. You can read a little more about Primitive Methodism in London on this page, which is a description by Rev Joseph Johnson in the Handbook of the 89th Annual Primitive Methodist Conference held in London in 1908 – including the statement that “In Bermondsey we are represented by St George‚Äôs Hall, Old Kent Road and Union Chapel, Rotherhithe, the character of the population here being such that churches can only be worked successfully on mission lines.” I wonder what that meant.
