As with so
many churches, numbers continued to fluctuate at Pett, falling very low by
the mid-1980s when the chapelís future seemed almost certain
to be closure.
Since then, membership has continued to rise
and fall, with an overall positive trend. While several
smaller village chapels have closed over the last few
years in this circuit (as with so many), Pett has seen a
healthy boost in numbers, and further renovation work is
now being planned.
Since early days, Pett Methodist has been a church
with a missionary vision, and that hasnít changed. In
2008, we will celebrate the chapelís 160th
anniversary. We are not celebrating the fact
that the building has held together for so many
years, but that the vision of those who built
it, and the faith of those who have continued to worship there
over the last century and a half, lives on
with Godís blessing.
We hope you have found the history of our church
interesting. To learn more about Pett Methodist Church
