THE HISTORY OF WYKE REGIS METHODIST CHUCH

Originally called the Wesleyan Methodist Chapel.it was built on Portland Road in 1903 to replace the one in Collins Lane. The land cost £120. The Chapel was built of brick with Bath stone dressing for £970 in gothic style. The stone laying was on Whit Monday 1903. The inscription on the memorial stones faced inwards so that the weather would not destroy them, and a bottle was placed in the cavity of a stone, containing the names of the Trustees of 100 years before. The Chapel was dedicated on Tuesday 3rd November 1903.

In 1932 the Primitive Chapel in Gallwey Road was amalgamated with the Wesleyan Chapel which was then renamed Union Methodist Church. The schoolroom was added in 1935. In 1940 the Church had 50 members, the Sunday school 180 members and 21 teachers.
The founding of Methodism in Wyke was in 1904
