History of our Church

1811

A Wesleyan Chapel was erected at the top of Holywell Lane and was later known as Temperance Hall.  Wesley's followers could not continue just as a society within the Established Church (C of E), given the requirement to formally register their existence.

Later, the Wesleyans themselves were also subject to a break-away in the development of other groups such as Primitive Methodists.

1842

The (top) chapel in Main Street was founded for the forty-strong flourishing Primitive Methodist congregation.

1894

The (bottom) Wesleyan Chapel was built in Main Street and the Holywell Lane Wesleyans moved in.

1932

Wesleyan, Primitive and United Methodists along with the Bible Christians, united as one national Methodist Church.   Almost thirty years later the two Methodist Chapels in Markfield united and formed the present Trinity Methodist Church.

Present day

We still worship in the Chapel on Main street – the building has had a few additions though!

We are a friendly bunch and enjoy Worship on Sundays but also many activities during the week including Children’s clubs, Music café, house groups to name a few.  We also have a variety of events throughout the year including performances by world class musicians, quizzes and various other concerts.  We work very closely with the other Churches in Markfield and enjoy planning services and events together.
