    The Methodist Church

    John Wesley first visited Faversham in 1738 on his return journey from America. On that occasion he recorded in his journal that the inhabitants “Were indeed more savage in their behaviour than the wildest Indians I have yet met with”.

    Wesley was to preach in Faversham on three other occasions the last being in 1788 when he rather grudgingly conceded in his journal “After a long winter the seed seems to be springing up”.

    It was not John Wesley however who was directly responsible for establishing Methodism in Faversham. That honour must go to two preachers from Canterbury, the brothers Charles and Edward Perronet. They first visited Faversham around 1765 and by 1770 when Wesley again visited the town a local congregation under the leadership of Mr. Pysing was meeting regularly in a hired room in Quay Lane.

    The early Methodists faced a great deal of opposition locally. Mr Pysing was threatened with the loss of his job “For entertaining the preachers in his house”, and in 1785 the local magistrates, no less, organised a mob to drive John Wesley out of town. The pugnacious little preacher who knew his rights regained control by threatening the magistrates with the law!

    The youthful Methodists society met in a variety of hired rooms during the eighteenth century gradually growing in numbers, until in 1808 it was able to purchase a plot of land in Preston Street for £165 and built a chapel there which was opened in 1809.

    In its early days Faversham relied greatly on Canterbury for its initiation and leadership, but by 1843 chapels had been opened in many of the surrounding villages and Faversham became head of a separate circuit, remaining so until 1960 when it was reabsorbed into the Canterbury circuit.

    Progress in the nineteenth century was steady rather than spectacular, but in 1859 the growing church decided to demolish its existing chapel and rebuild the existing ground and the adjoining plot which had been purchased some years earlier.

    This new building was opened in 1861, and further accommodation was made when the galleries were added ten years later.

    The Wesleyan Sunday School had been established in 1810, and by the end of the century boasted over 300 scholars and 52 teachers. Some of the memoirs elsewhere in this history tell of the important place which the Sunday School occupied in the lives of many young people.

    In 1871 the Wesleyans opened a day school immediately behind the church, and the accommodation was increased ten years later by the purchase of land the other side of Solomons Lane. This school continued to serve the local community until the reorganisation of education following the ‘Butler’ Education Act of 1944.

    Although the Wesleyans introduced Methodism to Faversham, other groups of the Methodist Church were also represented in the town.
    The Bible Christians established a meeting house in Water Lane in 1831, and by 1852 they were well enough established to build a new chapel in Abbey Place with accommodation for 500 persons.
    In 1898 they again moved, this time to a new chapel built in Stone Street. In 1907 the Bible Christians became one of the partners in the united Methodist Church, and the Stone Street chapel became known by this name.
    A notable feature of the Bible Christian Church was its missionary zeal, and at least three of the pioneer missionaries to South West China had connections with the Stone Street chapel.

    The Primitive Methodists established themselves in Faversham in 1857 when they purchased a preaching house in ‘The Brents’ from the Wesleyans. They continued in these premises until 1898 when they took over the Abbey Place chapel vacated by the Bible Christians. This cause however declined during the early years of the 20th century, and the Abbey Place chapel closed sometime between 1909 and 1917.

    In 1932 the major branches of Methodism joined together to form the Methodist Church as it is constituted today. Following this union the Stone Street congregation joined with that of Preston Street in 1941.
