Welcome to My Methodist History where you can enjoy sharing photos, memories or research about anything to do with the Methodist Church since the various strands joined together in 1932.
Having read this wonderful description of Whiston Methodist Chapel, I just had to reply. I was Sunday School Queen the year after Margaret Gammage. I had played Cinderella in the pantomime with my Beautiful dress. I had a silly crush on Buttons! I remember all the wonderful youth club Saturdays and Sunday services. I was a member of the Choir and after the service Peter Littlewood sat at the piano and we gathered around to sing our favourite hymns. This Chapel was a safe haven for me, living in a very unhappy Environment as a foster Child. I still wish I had taken my hymn book with me, with my name printed inside. I left Rotherham when I reached the age of 18 and wished never to return. The only Place I missed was Whiston Methodist Chapel. I now live in Sweden.
I visited in 1960 as part of a group from Kings Road Methodist Church, Birmingham.
Dear FAJ as we knew you, you taught us History in senior school at CCGS and I remember you well. We went on a couple of archaeological visits as I was Minutes Secretary of the school Archaeological Society in the Upper Sixth. We miss and remember you dearly. Robert Slinn
