Whilst visiting the bustling town centre of Rotherham, take a stroll up the hill to Talbot Lane and explore this wonderful Methodist church.

Often called a "gem of Methodist architecture", the church was built in the neo-gothic style in 1903, after fire destroyed the previous early 19th century chapel built on the site where John Wesley preached. The church is the largest meeting place in Rotherham, with seating for around 850 people thanks to large galleries around three sides.

The interior of the church is magnificent, with some wonderful carved woodwork, including an oak pulpit and font and a high vaulted roof. The lovely Art Nouveau style chandeliers and early 1900's stained glass windows create beautiful light in the church.
