About Us

Methodism in Harrogate has been traced back almost as far as John Wesley's day, and since its opening in 1862 Wesley Chapel has been a dominant landmark in Harrogate and has played a major role in town centre life. The work of its people carries on from a long tradition of devotion to the town. 
You are welcome into our chapel whenever it is open, whether you join us for worship, to pray, enjoy the peace or just to view our lovely building.
