Hall Street Methodist Church, Llanelli

(for Victoria Rd Click Here)

Hall Street is a landmark church with a very significant history. It is a Grade 11 listed building, "designed as an elaborate Gothic chapel by an architect said to have led the Wesleyan church into the path of the Gothic Revival" (P.Holden, present Architect leading the proposed redevelopment).

The first phase of construction was completed in 1856 and was designed by James Wilson, architect of Bath. The second phase (1870) of Transepts and Alter apse are attributed to James Wilson but may have been carried out by his son, also an architect who married into the 'Buckley' Family. Rev. James Buckley combined his clerical calling with the founding of the famous Buckley Breweries.

The tower and spire were designed by local architect W. Griffiths, and were completed in 1896.

Within the nave, Wilson has created a wonderful baronial hall framed by ranks of braced scissor trusses supported on moulded timber brackets.

The church is used for weekly services, including funerals and is in demand for weddings and baptisms. There is a prayer group that meets monthly, a weekly fellowship meeting and other ad hoc events. Sunday services have a breadth of worship style.

There is the new Lantern Centre at the side of the church, a modern and well-equipped hall (with separate meeting room) which is used throughout the week for church meetings and community activities.

The church is fortunate in having an excellent childrens' and youth leadership team -there is a Sunday Club, CHAT group for teenagers, and a Junior and Senior Youth Club. All are welcome.


A new and exciting phase in the church's history is underway, and we pray that the journey, though a complicated one, will be successful.

You will find Hall Street Methodist church to be friendly and welcoming. Do come and see us.
