History

Bingley Methodist Church was known as Mornington Road Methodist Church until the mid 1990's.

The foundation stone for our former Church building was laid on 4 November 1871, and the official opening was on 23 September 1874.

However, the large building was proving to be very expensive to maintain so the decision was taken to demolish the existing Church and build a new one. The plans for our new Church building were finally approved by Bradford Council's planners on 19 July 2001 - read the news sheet from Sunday 22 July 2001.

Demolition of the building commenced in March 2002 and the site had been levelled by the following June. During demolition and construction, the congregation of Bingley Methodist Church worshipped next door at Priestthorpe Primary School. To view demolition pictures, click here.

Construction of the new church building took place from July 2002 to March 2003. To view construction pictures, click here.

Our first service in the new church took place on Sunday 16 March 2003. View pictures taken that morning, or read the news sheet.
