Biographical Info

Gamblesby Chapel once played host to John Wesley, the founder of Methodism who arrived from Newcastle in 1772. He built a chapel on this site in 1784, which was replaced in 1864. The chapel celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2014 with a Wesley weekend and re-enactment of the founders visit.

The chapel meets alternative Sunday’s for worship at 2p.m. In addition, a weekly coffee morning is held for the community every Tuesday for ecumenical fellowship and outreach.

Once a month there is a creative Christian children’s club on a Sunday morning at 10a.m where children from the village and surrounding villages, meet to learn more about the Bible and Jesus in a practical, fun way. Parents and grandparents enjoy coffee and are encouraged to join in whatever the activity! The children are actively involved in special services e.g Community Carol Service, Remembrance Service, Harvest Festival, Mothering Sunday and Easter.

Each quarter a newsletter is produced and distributed to each household within the village, and neighbouring areas, keeping all residents and visitors up to date with recent happenings and forthcoming events.
