New Room Bristol

There follows extracts from the former official guidebook


The two-decker pulpit followed the custom of those days, the upper part being used for the sermon and the lower part for the rest of the service. The present upper part is a replica. The communion table is that which was used by Wesley. The people sat on plain benches. Wesley gave the clock. The Snetzler Chamber Organ of 1761 on the right hand side of the gallery, as you face the pulpit, was brought here in the present century. Wesley presided at eighteen Conferences here. A plaque on the right hand side as you face the pulpit, originally on a house in Dighton Street, tells how Wesley in 1784 ordained Thomas Coke, who went to America and ordained Francis Asbury. They, became Bishops of the Methodist Episcopal Church in America.
