About Boundary Road

 

We are a small but growing church in the middle of a housing estate. We want to be at the heart of the community and the hub of local activities that benefit those we live along side. We host a number of activities throughout the week, the Foodbank which is open on Tuesday mornings and we even serve as a polling station on election days. We are interested in building partnerships with all we can work with to further this.

 

A small congregation, we are a warm and friendly church. Our worship is fairly traditional, but we are always up for trying something new. We have a flexible worship space with chairs instead of pews. We are an active part of the Churches Together in the area.

 

We hold regular concerts and social events, so look out for information about that.

A Brief History

The building was originally a Tenants Hall to cater for the new Higher Irlam Estate around 1930. In May 1930 a Sunday School was introduced to serve the Children of the Estate. Soon two sittings were required each Sunday to accommodate numbers, and before long evening services for adults were included.

The Hall was put up for sale on the death of its owner and the Methodists were offered first refusal for the princely sum of £550 (including land, building and contents). The congregation worked desperately hard to raise the cash, fending off the attentions of the Socialists and Roman Catholics who were both keen to obtain the property. In July 1931 the premises were purchased and dedicated as a ‘Methodist Place of Worship’. There was a vestry extension in 1949 and major repairs in 1964. Further improvements have been made since, including a perimeter fence.
