Opened in 1860 and now standing derelict due to dry/wet rot the managing trustees of Northwood Chapel are reaching out to their local community for assistance in making crucial repairs.

Without these repairs to their little chapel, they face the possibility of losing this invaluable community asset.

The managing trustees have in recent months had the privilege of supporting the Friends of the Horse & Jockey, Northwood by providing them with a space for their meetings and presentations.

It has been truly inspiring to witness the unity of our community in coming together to support and preserve the Horse & Jockey through fund raising, grants and community shares and they would be greatly appreciate the support from their close-knit community as they hold events to raise funds to carry out these necessary repairs.

Northwood Methodist Chapel was opened for Worship on 25th November 1860 so it is part of the history of Northwood.

Once restored and reconfigured inside, their little Chapel will not only serve as a place of worship but will also be available for hire, providing a cozy venue for small community events in addition to include a vast array of activities such as knit and natter, exercise classes, workshops and talks and the local community to enjoy.

The manging trustees would also like to extend our deepest gratitude to the Friends of the Horse & Jockey for their unwavering support and invaluable guidance as we research grants and raise funds.

Please join them for a Coffee Morning at Wem Methodist Church, Aston Street, Wem on Saturday, 18th November from 10 am to 12 pm.

This event features a cake stall 🍰, Tombola, and much more, all in support of Northwood Methodist Chapel.”
