We believe the Church does NOT have a graveyard.

Note: any church within an urban environment may have had its graveyard closed after the Burial Act of 1853. Any new church built after that is unlikely to have had a graveyard at all.

Church History

This Place of Worship was founded in 1900, and we understand it is still open.

A Wesleyan Methodist community was founded 1825 in Borrowash in 1825, according to Derbyshire Record Office's Non-Conformist Register Guide. Its chapel was rebuilt in 1900, so it seems likely this building is today's Borrowash Methodist Church. The former Wesleyan Chapel is just a short distance away, in Chapel Row, and now in use as commercial premises.

Borrowash also had a Primitive Methodist Chapel, in Victoria Street - according to the St John's Methodist Church, Allestree website, the two were united in 1949, with the former Wesleyan Church becoming the Borrowash Methodist Church, and the former Primitive Methodist being transferred into private ownership.


Now or formerly Methodist.

If more than one congregation has worshipped here, or its congregation has united with others, in most cases this will record its original dedication.
