West Bridgford Methodist Church – our past
There have been Methodist Churches in West Bridgford since 1888. At its peak, the town supported 3 Methodist churches. Now, only one remains – at the junction of Patrick and Musters Road. It used to be called ‘Musters Road Methodist Church’ but is now known as ‘West Bridgford Methodist Church’. The others were on Gordon Road and Trent Boulevard.
The church has a rich history and there have been various documents produced over the years to record this. We are a church group interested in collecting and preserving and researching this history and making it available. This website is created to share our history of Methodism in West Bridgford, and make available the articles we have. Copyright of all material is owned by West Bridgford Methodist Church, but feel free to use it for non-commercial purposes.
However we recognise this is not the whole story and would love to collect more. We would really welcome contributions from anyone who can provide information to make our history more complete. Thank you.
1988 – a document produced to celebrate the centenary of the church
2008 – an extensive review of the 120 year history of the church and of Methodism in West Bridgford. This is a 90 page document so we have scanned only the first section. Please contact us if you need to view the rest.
2019 – on the centenary of the armistice we felt we should research the names on the WW1 memorial so they were not forgotten
We have not yet been able to research the names on our WW2 memorial plaque, but have some basic information obtained from Aspects of West Bridgford History 2. If you can supply any additional information, please let us know.
Information is available in the Nottinghamshire County Archives as follows:
