Birmingham Bristol Hall Primitive Methodist chapel

Bristol Hall on Bristol Street was the successor to Bethesda Primitive Methodist chapel on Gooch Street..  You can read about Bethesda chapel here .

Bristol Hall opened in 1899 with a ceremony performed by Mrs W. Arundel.   It comprised  a lecture hall, a mission hall, five classrooms and other rooms and the cost was expected to be around £6,000. It in turn was closed in 1928.

The Primitive Methodist magazine of November 1900 tells us much detail about the hall and its place in a drive to make the Prim Connexion stronger in a significantly growing part of the country. It discusses such detail as the merits of chairs (more democratic) or pews (better for families).
