Amble High St. Methodist Church

Amble High St MethodistThis rather splendid building played a significant part in my childhood. It was here that my parents were married. Their wedding photo was taken on the steps at the front. I was christened here too. We went there every Sunday morning throughout my formative years. The chapel was upstairs and underneath was a hall and stage where, as a member of the Methodist Youth Group, I had my first stage performances. I have a very embarrassing photo of me in crepe paper, acting the part of a flower, which I am not planning to post here 🙂  I went on to become a Sunday School teacher in my teens. Many happy memories of people who had a big influence on me as I was growing up.

Unfortunately it no longer exists. It was demolished when I was in my teens and we moved to the other Methodist church in Percy St.

A big thanks to Stan from the facebook group “Amble in Old Photographs” for sharing this photo and being generous enough to allow others to use it to stir a few more memories.
