A Small History of Walton Methodist Church
Originally Walton Methodist Church was located along Annett Road, but the gas board, at the time, wanted to extend their plant meaning that the church would have to be demolished. In the end this did happen and the gas board bought the old church and land for £700. A new church was then built in the current location in 1887 costing £350 just for the land.
Throughout the recent years Walton Methodist Church has undergone many changes, with a modern glass front being constructed to create a communal entrance and give the whole church a more welcoming feel from the outside. The main church has been redesigned, with the removal of the pipe organ.
The rear premises have also been refurbished in the last 10 years, resulting in a new centrally positioned kitchen with two new meeting rooms and toilet facilities, plus a glazed link to provide easy disabled access to the rear of the building.
With new ideas brewing, Walton Methodist Church is a very dynamic building and community.
