Worship Area

Worship Area - The main worship area or chapel dates back to 1811 and was built by a Wesleyan Methodist Congregation wanting a more central location in the city. It was extended and refurbished in the early C20th. The worship area is normally available during coffee bar opening hours for quiet reflection and prayer in the middle of a busy city centre. The rates for hiring this room are on the understanding that it is an open space, open to all during coffee bar opening hours. There are 185 chairs in the Worship Area and a few original pews that can also be used for seating. The maximum seating would be 240 in total.

Covid-19

Wesley's approach, following the July 19th removal of legal Covid restrictions, is to ask people to continue to be considerate of the needs of others. The revised Church Centre signage encourages the wearing of face coverings, the use of sanitisers and handwashing and continued respect of social distancing.

The atrium was added during Wesley’s refurbishment works in 2009, replacing the former courtyard and joining up the hall and worship area. It’s used as a cafe space but also for bread making and other community activities. Thanks to its large roof light, it benefits from excellent daylight levels and works well as an exhibition space.
