Diary of Events

 

The Union Street Wesleyan Chapel in Torquay decided that the growing district of Chelston needed a place of worship, and decided to establish a Society there. The first service in 1887 was held in a room over a stable in Walnut Road... then moving to a house called Mapledene. Richard Mallock granted them a lease on a plot of land where the now Chelston Methodist Church stands. 
It was opened in 1893 and comprised of a chapel and seating for 500 people.
