Strange though the name is, New Invention is a hamlet in Shropshire. Its Primitive Methodist chapel was built in 1864 and was called Providence. This seems an unusual name for a Methodist chapel, though it is common among the Strict Baptists. The word refers to the way God rules over his creation, including the details of our lives: “Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?” said Jesus.
