Mottram Congregational Church

The church dates from 1791 but was altered in 1836 and 1852 when the stone wing was added.

It was built as a Methodist meeting house, changed to the New Connexion in 1803 and to a Congregational church around 1850.

It is said to be the oldest surviving Methodist chapel in the Manchester area which is still in use as a place of worship.

The church itself is now an independent Evangelical Church whilst the adjoining chapel serves as a Pregnancy Advice Centre and other local community services.

It is a Grade II listed building. See Old Hyde for the official description.

Lovely to see this photo. I was organist there for a short period in 1963/64. It was my first organist job at the age of about 18/19.

Lovely little Chapel with a delightful congregation.
