The old Pentecostal Chapel, Pallance Road – Help wanted.

Posted by Admin on 8 May 2011, 12:00 am

Can anybody help me find a photograph of the exterior of the old Pentecostal Chapel, Pallance Road?

This building stood towards the bottom of Pallance Road, not far up from the Methodist Chapel on the corner with Pallance Lane before being demolished some years ago when new houses were built on the site.

I have been researching Nem Russell to whose memory the original building was dedicated in 1887 as a Parish Room and Workmen's Club affiliated to St John the Baptist, Northwood Church and wanted to illustrate a proposed article about her with photographs of significant places in her life.

In the early 1900s the Parish Room became St Peter's Mission Church (associated with St John the Baptist, Northwood).  After the First World War it fell into disrepair and in 1930 was sold by the Church to Mr Rogerson of Gurnard. Thereafter it became a Pentecostal Chapel.

There are no photographs in the County Records Office. I contacted two former members of the Pentecostal Church who used to worship there but unfortunately they were unable to help.  If I knew the dates when it was sold/put on the market/demolished, it might be possible to trace some photograph via the County Press if the event was reported there.

Has anyone any ideas or information which could help please?
