About The Height
The Height Methodist Community church is a very active community Church on ‘The Height’ (Irlams o’th’ Height, Salford), hosting more than 20 Church and community groups from Brownies and Guides to Shawl Ministry and Tea Dances. We also host a monthly Messy Church on a Saturday afternoon.
Our Sunday morning worship ranges from Café Church, relaxed contemporary worship, to more traditional services. Some Sundays we join with other churches to worship - these are highlighted on our diary which can be found on our website but we are open most of the time throughout the week if you need a place to come to collect your thoughts and spend time with God.
Our building consists of a multi-purpose worship space, a large hall, café area and a number of smaller meeting rooms.
We are a welcoming church, irrespective of who you are and where you come from, we look forward to seeing you soon.
A Brief History
August 1810 - some Height people decided that ‘We commence a Sunday School for definite religious teaching’. In March the Sunday School began in two cellars under houses on the main road on the boundary between Pendleton and Pendlebury - boys in one cellar, girls in the other, with space between for the Superintendent! This was the start of the ‘Methodist Society in the Height’’. There were several moves to larger premises. On Good Friday 1834 the first Chapel opened on the Westwood site. In 1835 the congregation split, resulting in a new Chapel being built (Bolton Road, 1847). Both congreations enjoyed growth and progress.
Final Buildings - Bolton Road 1878, Westwood 1881. The two Churches were in different Circuits and different branches of the Methodist Church - Westwood was ‘Wesleyan’, Bolton Road was ‘United’. The two became the same at Methodist Union in 1932. Eventually we became one Church, using Bolton Road premises and taking the name ‘Height Methodist Church’.
