Mossey Green United Methodist Free Chapel

The Wellington Journal of Saturday 17th September 1898, page 8, tells us about a sermon remembering a former member of Mossey Green United Methodist Free Chapel

“MOSSY GREEN.

FUNERAL SERMON. At the United Methodist Free Church on Sunday evening the Rev. W. Pearce of St. George’s in the course of his sermon, made reference to the late Mr. N. Pitchford of Old Park, who had been a regular and consistent worshipper and office bearer since the opening of the chapel, which he helped to found.

In the course of his remarks the preacher said the late Mr. Pritchard had been a member of the church for about 60 years, formerly with the Wesleyan Methodists, and from the time of the reform agitation with the U.M.F.C. He was most devoted to the cause of Christ at Mossy Green, and had won the respect of all who knew him. The choir was conducted by Mr. J. Dunkey, and sang as a special item the anthem, ‘The Christian’s Victory’. Mr. Ball presided at the harmonium.”

Thanks to Janice Cox for providing the reference.  You can read more about the chapel and see a picture on Janice’s Shropshire’s Non-Conformist chapels website here. It tells us the chapel opened in 1873 and closed 98 years later in 1971.

Google Street View shows that it was converted to residential use some time between 2009 and 20015.
