The New Room (Wesley Chapel)
The New Room in Bristol is the oldest Methodist Chapel in the world (originally built in 1739) and the cradle of the early Methodist movement. It was built and used by John Wesley and the early Methodists as a meeting and preaching place and the centre for helping and educating the needy members of the community.
You can visit the New Room Monday to Saturday, 10am to 4pm and see not only the church but also the museum situated in the reading room on the first floor.
This Grade 1 Listed Building is a beautifully preserved, yet functioning, part of Bristol’s radical history.
