Oxford City Centre Chapels

Former St Michael's Street Chapel, Oxford

Originally meeting in hired premies in Little Clarendon Street, then at New Inn Hall Street, in 1851 the congregation moved to a former schoolroom in Paradise Square.

In 1872, they built a permanent chapel, designed by J C Curtis in St Michael’s Street. It closed in 1933, when the congregation merged with Wesley Memorial Methodist Church, a few hundred yards away.

The Paradise Square and St Michael’s Street Chapels were the central chapels of the United Methodist Free and United Methodist Circuits.

The city council purchased the St Michael’s Street building in 1933, when it became known as the Northgate Hall.
