Welcome to the New Room / John Wesley's Chapel

The New Room in Bristol is the oldest Methodist Chapel in the world (originally built in 1739) and the cradle of the early Methodist movement.

It was built and used by John Wesley and the early Methodists as a meeting and preaching place and the centre for helping and educating the needy members of the community.

The chapel itself is on the ground floor. On the top floor of the building, above the chapel, are the Preachers’ Rooms. This is where a new accredited museum is located which tells the story of John and Charles Wesley and their life and work in Bristol. 

The New Room is open from Monday to Saturday 10.30am to 4pm all year round. Please check this website for Bank Holiday opening times.

Entry to the chapel is free although charges apply for museum entry. Donations towards the work of the chapel are always welcome.   

A shop stocks a range of items relating to John & Charles Wesley, the New Room and Methodism.

We look forward to welcoming you to the New Room; over 25,000 visitors come every year from all over the world!
