Driffield, Bourne Primitive Methodist Continuing Church

At the time of Methodist Union in 1932, when the Primitive, Wesleyan and United Methodists joined to become The Methodist Church in Britain, there was a group of Primitive Methodists in Driffield who declared independence. 

The Bourne Primitive Methodist Continuing Church was opened in 1933.

  • The Primitive Methodist Continuing Church came into existence on the same day as the reunited Methodist Church (2.7.1932). The Driffield congregation met in the practice room of the local silver band until the building in the photo was opened on 22.7.1933.

    Ref. MRW/12/1-2: Holmpton Primitive Methodist Chapel, built 1877. In 1906 the PM’s used the Wesleyan Chapel, their own having been demolished. The Holmpton Primitive Methodists stayed out of the Methodist Union in 1932 and started to have services in farmhouses, until they later had a new Chapel built.
