The remainder of the building of the old Methodist Church in Prestwick Road was demolished today.  The new Methodist Church just a few yards away from old now looks very smart with its new signage in place.

  • My previous comment above, refers to a Sunday School outing photograph, which can be viewed at ‘The Barn’ ‘Enjoy browsing’.

  • Seeing these pictures reminded me that both my Brother Jim, myself & friends, were probably the first to attend the original Methodist Church, held in The ‘Old Barn’ in Oxhey Lane, St Meryls Estate about 1944. It was a small extension of Bushey & Oxhey Methodist Church, & was run by Mr & Mrs Field of Greenfield Ave, & a Mr John Cook who lived in the Court Way.

    Our first Sunday School Outing was to Kings Langley on a No. 302 Bus from Watford Heath. It was a very hot day as I can remember us drinking strawberry jelly, as it refused to set. I have posted a photo of that outing, just in case there is anyone out there who may still recognise themselves. Left in the back row is Mr Field, end right is Mrs Field, 2nd Row from left to right rear, is Myself, Arthur Hall, Raymond Brooks, Jean Morgan, Rex Gower, I cannot remember the remainder, 3rd row from rear Left to right is Brian Burgess, & my Brother Jim. Old age has blotted from my memory the remainder. The new church certainly makes our Old Barn, look like a Barn, it did however have a very warm heart.
