Chapeltown Community Church

Chapeltown Community Church
Picture of former United Reformed Church at Potternewton, now the Chapeltown Community Church.

Today this is the Chapeltown Community Church, but prior to this fairly recent change it was a United Reformed Church.

Yorkshire was very much home to the Nonconformist religious movements with many towns, villages and cities having several chapels of various denominations.

This building constructed in 1906 just across from Potternewton park would I think be quite a bit less visible when these tall mature trees are in leaf.

  2. Whatever the life inside, the architecture of this kind of building gives it a strangely empty atmosphere.

  3. A solid old Yorkshire building Paul- what does a "community" church signify that is different form its previous incarnations?

  4. the building was for sale by the United Reformed Church and bought by the Community Church who had previously met in rented buildings! Its definitely NOT an empty atmosphere inside! Hehe! x
