Statistical returns of the Uniting Churches 1907

By Philip Thornborow

The Minutes of the First Conference of the United Methodist Church, held in Wesley's Chapel, City Road, London, September 1907 contain much useful information concerning the three uniting denominations. We intend making this document available in the near future, but in the meantime present the statistical returns, as an indication of the strength and reach of the Bible Christians, Methodist New Connexion, and United Methodist Free Churches in 1907.

This is an interesting document but sadly it does not go down to individual chapels. The UMs did carry out a survey of seating accommodation in their churches in 1924. I have found some copies of the returns held locally but it would be useful to know where a full set can be seen, even better to have it digitised an put on line.

Askew's Free Methodist Manusal 1899 has on pp 264-277 lists of all circuits and  chapels and preaching-houses in the UMFC.
