Kidlington Chapel

Kidlington Methodist Church today

Methodists have been meeting in Kidlington since 1809, when a house was first licensed for worship in 1809. In 1846 a former malt house in Mill End belonging to Thomas Carter was registered for worship and converted into a chapel.

Most of the congregation seceded to the Wesleyan Reform movement. A prominent Reformer, G G Banbury of Woodstock, was instrumental in the establishment of what became a United MethodistĀ Free chapel in School Road in 1861.

Following Methodist Union, the chapel in School Road continued in use until new premises were built in Oxford Road. The chapel in School Road was demolished in 1962.
