Primitive Methodist Church

History Primitive Methodist Church 1

In 1851 the first primitive Methodist Church was built on the same site where the Salisbury Community Hub now stands. Soon after the church was opened it became too small and a larger church was built. On 18 April 1858 the new church, named ‘Hephzibah’ meaning ‘In her my delight’, was opened. More than 100 years on, in 1960, the land and surrounding buildings were sold following commercial interest. The church was demolished in 1961 however, the cemetery still remains today.
