History

A Wesleyan Chapel was built on Front Street in Acomb in 1821, and was replaced by the new Trinity Chapel in 1879. In 1947 the congregation of Trinity Chapel amalgamated with that of the Primitive Methodist Sanctuary Chapel, which had opened in 1912.

Trinity Chapel was part of the York, Wesley Circuit of the Wesleyan Methodist Connexion until 1935 when the York, Wesley and Victoria Bar Circuits joined together and it became part of a new, enlarged Wesley Circuit of a single Methodist Connexion.

Trinity Chapel closed in October 1964 and the present Acomb Methodist Church opened a week later.
