Mapping Methodism – Chapel Histories currently being compiled

Categories Articles0 Comments

Mapping Methodism is a project to record the history of our Cornish Methodist chapel buildings.

If you would like to ‘adopt a chapel’ and explore its history in a similar way to this example (Mawla) then please get in touch (mappingmethodism@gmail.com) letting us know which chapel. By doing so we will avoid the chance of duplication.

In addition, a number of profiles have already been completed and included on this website: these can be found by carrying out a word search.
