Pocklington is on the A1079 between York and Hull. We are on Chapmangate, close to the town centre. A large car park is located behind the Chapel. With the Church on your left, after 80 yards turn left into Hallgate. At the end of Hallgate turn left into Kirkland Street. After 100 yards turn left at the ‘No through Road’ sign into Rundle Place and into the car park.

Records indicate that John Wesley visited Pocklington 18 times, the first being in 1752. By 1764 a meeting house existed, probably on the site of the current Chapel, where in 1813 a new chapel was built. The current building dates from 1864 and was completely refurbished in 2000. A burial ground once attached to the church was used until the 1930's.

The church ground floor area seats 120 (with chairs that can be moved to form a large open space). Wesley House adjoins the main church building and offers 3 meeting rooms for up to 20, and one small office for up to 3 people. Facilities include wheelchair access and wheelchair accessible toilet at the rear of the church, audio visual equipment, audio loop system, baby changing facilities, garden and car park.

The internal structure was completely redesigned in 2000 to create a flexible meeting space. The excellent provision of a large main worship area, entrance space, ancillary rooms and kitchen gives the opportunity for the church and community to provide activities and groups to meet the needs of all. Some rooms are available for hire (scroll through photos at the top of this church page to see images of rooms for hire). For more details contact [email protected]
