Boston. People’s Temple. [CAH CH-MA B6 P4]

Founded by Bishop John W. Hamilton in 1877, as a continuation of the Church Street M.E. Church, a new, larger church was dedicated in 1884 at the corner of Columbus and Berkeley Streets, on the site of the present Salvation Army Headquarters. Merged with Bromfield-Tremont M.E. Church in 1922 to form United, later Copley M.E. Church. Tremont did not actually close until 1970, so Copley was directly a merger of Bromfield and People’s Temple, but under the name of the Methodist Religious Society in Boston, which included Tremont. Records prior to 1877 are from Church Street M.E. Church, apparently copied into these record books. Some records appear in Copley recordbooks. Church Street records contain trustee and treasurer records from 1899-1908 concerning the People’s Temple parsonage.

Lawrence. First Methodist Episcopal Church. [CAH CH-MA L3 F45]

The church traces its beginning to 1846 with the appointment of Rev. James L. Slason. A church was built in 1848 at Haverhill and Hampshire Streets, called Haverhill Street Methodist Episcopal Church. In 1868, prayer meetings held in South Lawrence in conjuction with the City Missionary Society resulted in the formation of Parker Street Methodist Episcopal Church. In the 1870′s, a mission was begun on Bodwell Street, which became the Bodwell Street Methodist Episcopal Church in 1879 (the name changed to St. Mark’s in 1890). In 1892, Haverhill Street became First Methodist Episcopal Church. The church merged in 1911 with Garden Street to form Central.

Lawrence. Parker Street Methodist Church. [CAH CH-MA L3 P3]

Prayer meetings began in 1868 led by Rev. D.C.Knowles of the Haverhill Street Methodist Episcopal Church and Rev. C.U.Dunning of the City Missionary Society. The church was organized in 1870, meeting on Blanchard Street until the sanctuary was constructed on Parker Street in 1873. The church was situated in South Lawrence and because of the City Missionary connection, became part of the New England rather than New Hampshire Conference, which administered the rest of the churches in Lawrence. In 1951, a Massachusetts Council of Churches study recommended closing or merging the church, and discussions began about merging with Central Methodist Church, a successor to Haverhill Street, but it took some time to arrange the merger since it involved two conferences. The last service at Parker Street was held January 2, 1955.

Leicester. Cherry Valley Methodist Episcopal Church. [CAH CH-MA L43 C4]

Cherry Valley, a village in the town of Leicester, was on circuit routes in the early nineteenth century, but first formed a society in 1846, when a union church was built and shared with the Episcopalians and Congregationalists. That building burned in 1856 and a new structure was built. The church continued to be shared into the 1880′s, but eventually became entirely Methodist. Because of changing demographics, the church was moved in 1903. In the 1970′s the church was listed together with Worcester/Aldersgate, with which it was finally merged in 1989.

Pembroke. Bryantville Methodist Church. [CAH CH-MA P3 B75]

Earliest preaching in this area traces to 1825 by a Duxbury pastor, B. Otheman, with an appointment following in 1826. The church was built in 1828, but had its ups and downs, even being served for a time by a Wesleyan minister. The church was closed briefly in the 1860′s, but reopened and was renovated in the 1870′s, adding a tower, bell and clock. The name was changed from South Hanson to Bryantville (a section of Pembroke) in 1878. In 1883, the church was yoked with Silver Lake, and in 1913 with West Duxbury. Part-time pastorate continued nearly 80 years, until 1958, with the full time appointment of Gilbert Caldwell. At this time the church experienced new periods of growth and renovation. Around 1903, the church was lifted and facilities were built on the ground level. In the 1956, the original parsonage was sold and a new one purchased two houses away, and in 1964, a new education wing was built at the back of the church. The congregation celebrated its 175th anniversary in 2000.

Wilbraham. First Methodist Episcopal Church. [CAH CH-MA W48]

The First Methodist Society occupied the original building (still standing) from its founding in 1794 until 1834, when the Second Church was constructed in part to accommodate the Wilbraham Academy students. A stone church, called Memorial Methodist, was constructed beginning in 1867 and occupied in 1870. In 1913, Memorial federated with the Congregational Church to form Wilbraham United Church. The Congregational Church merged with the Evangelical Church in 1947, enlarging the congregation of the United Church. A new United Church building was erected in 1957 and occupied in 1958.

Worcester. Trowbridge Memorial Methodist Episcopal Church. [CAH CH-MA W6 T7]

Regular meetings were held as early as the 1820s, and the site was on circuit routes for many years, but it was not until 1860 that a society was formed. The Webster Square Methodist Episcopal Church met in the Union Hall until 1870, when their own building was dedicated. The church burned in 1875, and was re-built in 1877. In 1893, the church was lifted and additional facilities were built beneath. Laboring under heavy debt, the church accepted an large donation from Charles E. Trowbridge of Whitinsville in 1905 with the provision that the church be called Trowbridge Memorial. The church was damaged again by fire in 1926. In 1964, Trowbridge Memorial merged with Park Avenue Methodist Church to form Aldersgate Methodist Church.
