Snailbeach Methodist Chapel

DSCF3735 (2)

Located just past the Village Hall, Snailbeach Chapel and graveyard lie on the Lower North-Western slopes of the Stiperstones ridge. Pastoral oversight of this chapel is with Revd. Shalome MacNeill Cooper, minister for the Rea Valley area. . Limited parking is available in a small car park just past the chapel towards Stiperstones. This building has several steps and a hand rail, with limited access for those with mobility issues.

Snailbeach is a chapel rich with history and has several Methodist related items on display, including a preaching plan that is well over 80 years old.  It was built on land belonging to the Marquis of Bath and opened for Worship in August 1876 at an estimated cost of £480 to William Evans of Yockleton.

Worship services usually occur mid-afternoon in the School Room adjacent to the Chapel itself.

Snailbeach often has coffee hours where the community gathers to support the church and local charities. The chapel is often host to Sankey Sings, and possibly, in future, Story Telling Nights. For more details, be sure to like our Rea Valley Methodists Facebook page.

Snailbeach joins Stiperstones for one service a month and the last Thursday of the month is our Communion Service followed by coffee.

We welcome you all.

For information about service times, view the preaching plans on the Service Times page.
