Nexus Methodist Church
(formerly Walcot Chapel), Bath
In 1741, Bath was fourth place to have a Methodist Society; with a ‘preaching house’ from
1759. New King Street Chapel was built to accommodate the growing congregation, and
opened by John Wesley in 1779.
Continued in use until almost completely destroyed in
1942 during WWII bombing. However, a chapel was needed for the overflow congregation
from New King Street long before that, and Walcot Chapel was opened in May 1816.
Imposing portico and galleried interior, with organ (built 1771 for Bath Assembly Rooms)
installed in 1818 – when organs were not officially approved for Methodist churches!
