Church Anniversary History Event - Sunday March 18th at 4pm
What was it like to live in Croxley Green in 1866? You might have met a Mr. Pierce or a Mrs. Bentley who both offered their homes as a venue for the newly worshipping community. This grew rapidly because a year later a site for a chapel was found in New Road and the building was opened on 16th February 1868.
Over the next twenty-five years not only did the population of the village increase but so must the membership of the local Primitive Methodist Society, because it was decided that a larger chapel was needed. As it had to be built on the same site as the 1868 building, a new Sunday school room was built first and used for worship until the old chapel was demolished and its replacement was built. The Grand Opening was on 30th April 1893 (125 years ago) at which point the school room became used for its intended purpose.
If you have enjoyed reading about the history of Croxley Green Methodists do come to our History afternoon on Sunday 18th March at 4 pm when you will hear lots of stories of the past – maybe you have stories to share – as we give thanks for all those who have devoted their lives to our Church. We are proud to be part of this history and able to worship in one of only two former Primitive Methodist Chapels in Hertfordshire that are still in use.
Good Friday Procession of Witness
We shall be joining with friends from the churches in Croxley Green on Good Friday (30th March) for the Procession of Witness. We will gather at 9.30 am in Winton Approach and proceed to our church, stopping along the way for prayers, readings and singing. Our Good Friday meditation service will follow at 11.15 am.
