Blackheath Methodist New Connexion Church

From my old Methodist Postcard Album
This series showing MNC Methodist New Connexion churches
This postcard is the architect drawing of Blackheath Methodist New Connexion Church, the Methodists have a new building now

The paragraph below was added to this page as a ‘comment’ when it was previously published on My Methodist History:

For clarity this church (still standing) was formerly in the county of Staffordshire and was never part of Warwickshire. The confusion lies in that it is distinguished from ‘Blackheath, London’ and then as a consequence ‘lumped’ geographically with Birmingham which lies some 7 miles away. This Blackheath is part of that area known as the ‘Black Country’. The church itself was constructed (if memory serves me right) in 1850 and stands on the junction of Birmingham Rd and The Causeway. The architect’s drawing I presume was a blueprint for the church as the completed building is somewhat different. I have a couple of postcards myself of this church and I will email them to the site shortly.

  • This is the 1906 building successor to the former Ebenezer Chapel of 1850. I believe Ebenezer was demolished when the new Sunday School was built in 1932
