St. Peter's Church

The church opened on Lowden on 19th November 1886 as a Chapel of Ease for St. Andrew's parish.  A new modern style church was then built on the corner of Lord's Mead and Frogwell on the western side of Chippenham.  This new building was opened on 7th December 1968 as a place of worship for St. Peter's own parish.  The old building on Lowden is now used by the New Testament Church.  No transcriptions available at present.

Primitive Methodist Chapel

The church opened on the corner of Sheldon Road Audley Road in 1901; it was a church plant from the old chapel on Lowden that had opened as a Sunday School in the mid 1800s.   The Sunday School members grew up and had families of their own so the congregation outgrew their premises on Lowden.  The new building was opened in Sheldon Road in 1901 and then enlarged and renovated in 1989.   Primitive Methodist Chapel Images
