Godshill is the oldest Wesleyan Chapel still in use on the island, it dates to Queen Victoria's Coronation in 1838 and was a replacement for an earlier one built in 1790. Methodism as a movement has its roots in bringing the Gospel message to the working class and among the earliest recorded members were local farmers, dairymen, carpenters, builders, a shoe-smith, domestic servants and labourers. The 1790 chapel was well known for its devout and zealous worship which grew rapidly, necessitating a new, larger building.
The chapel is open most days during the tourist season and visitors are always given a very warm welcome. Godshill village attracts large numbers of visitors and the beautifully kept chapel garden provides a peaceful place in which to enjoy a welcome break from the busyness of the village.
We are a small group but we have big hearts and are always blessed to be welcoming people to our chapel.Contact: Netta Clark, 01983 840930
