A New Millennium

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 and what we are getting up to in the 21st Century, please take a look at the rest of our website.
