WORSHIP at the Hall is totally uplifting. The Advent calendar, opening daily outside the church is a wonderful outreach project and we'll worth supporting

Apologies for the very late review, but when in RAF I used to attend Sunday evenings and found the Worship very uplifting, and Sermons were always good. I now live in the Far East, and Methodist Churches here are in various languages and have HUGE congregations .I wish the Central Hall well for the future and have fond memories. Maurice... More

At a time when we hear that membership of the Methodist Church in England has plummeted by a third over the last few years, the Central Hall in Plymouth is trying hard to buck the trend. I lean to laid back pragmatic Anglicanism but Methodism has always been rather like an offshoot just without the bishops and a slightly disapproving... More

The appeal of Methodism over three centuries persists here. The simple doctrine of justification through faith and instant salvation. An important message bringing comfort hope and security in an increasingly uncertain fragile dangerous world. No wonder that there were once more than a thousand chapels in Cornwall and West Devon. Wesleyan Methodism was perhaps closest to Anglicanism and the Central... More

Friendly and inviting. Comfy seats, bright & cheerful with amazing worship. The sermons are the best I've every listened to.

The fact that this building survived the blitz is enough of a reason for a visit. Within the museum's local history it was not even mentioned and yet it played such an important roll within the community of Plymouth during war. The newly designed front elevation is wonderful and the illuminated cross is a great witness to the Christian faith.

Livelyish and well attended. A very stylish prewar interior has been much hacked about but apparently for good reason. The exterior too has seen a number of bold additions suggesting that this congregation is thriving and aware of the world around it. Visitors are always made welcome but having been twice with sincere committed friends I am afraid I find... More

Built in the 30s in the style of a simple cinema with comfy tip up seats and a huge balcony, this medium sized Methodist 'Central Hall' was enthusiastically given over to civic and concert use during WWII when every other large city centre meeting place had been flattened. Now one of the few buildings that give locals and visitors a... More
