Hanley Church Publishes History of 200 Years
On 7th October 1812 Hope Congregational Church opened its doors for the first time, with a sermon by Rev. William Roby of Manchester. 200 years later, the Church has changed its name to Bethel Evangelical Free Church, and the old building has been replaced by a 1970s Modernist church, but we are still here.
And what a story we have to tell of those two centuries! It's much more than we can tell in a short article, or even in an hour-long lecture from our pastor. It starts with our pre-history, the story of Christianity in the Potteries, really gets going with the Methodists and Congregationalists in the 18th century, and then in 1812, not without a little scandal, Hope Chapel was born. Since 1814, when Hope Street was laid out, we have been the Hope in Hope Street, and that is the name of the 270-page paperback that our Pastor has written to commemorate our Bicentenary. It deals with early missionaries in India in the 1820s, education, Pastor Smith's belief in the power of art, Pastor David Horne and the Hanley Tragedy of 1881, the Potteries Revival of 1930, ASunday School over two centuries, and much more. The Hope in Hope Street is available From Amazon.co.uk
