Liverpool, Renshaw Street, Central Hall of the Wesleyan Mission

Liverpool, Renshaw Street, Central Hall of the Wesleyan Mission was designed by Bradshaw & Glass of Bolton and opened in 1905. The authors of the Buildings of England, Lancashire, Liverpool and the South- West write of the building mingling classical, Byzantine, Gothic and Jacobean and refer to the art nouveau character of the terra cotta work., concluding “it all looks thoroughly unchurchlike and might well have been a theatre or department store”.The chapel is now closed and the building is occupied for leisure purposes
