The first recorded meeting place for Methodist people in Uppingham was registered in December 1817 using a school room provided by one of the leaders. It took eighteen months before sufficient funds could be raised to build a chapel which stood on the site in Orange Street still occupied by the present church.
Uppingham Methodist Church produces a weekly news sheet detailing the a variety of activities and opportunities for prayer and worship we offer. All are welcome!
