History

York, Albion Street Methodist Chapel was opened in 1816. Situated at the corner of Albion Street and Skeldergate, it could accommodate 700 people. A Sunday School opened there the following year.

By the mid nineteenth century the building was deemed too small for the rapidly growing population south of the river Ouse and around the railway station and workshops. A new and larger chapel opened in 1856 on Priory Street, eventually superseding the Albion Street chapel, which was sold by 1861.

The chapel was part of what was then a single York Circuit of the Wesleyan Methodist Connexion from its foundation to its closure.

The chapel building was used as commercial premises and later demolished in the twentieth century.
