Wattlesborough Methodist Chapel

The first Wattlesborough Methodist Chapel was a hut situation on Wigmore Lane, which soon became too small for the Primitive Methodist congregations.

Therefore in 1893 Sir baldwyn Leighton generously gave 488 square yards of a valuable and eligable site for a new more suitable building to be built. Although attached to the Church of England, Sir Baldwyn Leighton gave generous assistance to other religious bodies. An energetic committee set to work, and soon a handsome sum was raised for the building fund. The foundation stone was laid by Sir Baldwyn & Miss Leighton accompainied by the music of the church band. After a successful 100 years, in 1993 we celebrated with a well attended flower festival, evening service and concert.

The chapel is nestled just before the Café in Halfway House. Pastoral oversight of this chapel is with Revd. Shalome MacNeill Cooper, minister for the Rea Valley area. Limited parking is available in front of the chapel. This building has one step to the main building and can be accessed by persons with limited mobilities.

Wattlesborough is a welcoming space with worship services offered either in the morning or the evening. Refreshments are often offered after morning worship services.
