The church was designed by Edward Pugin the son of Augustus Pugin and was completed in 1856: amongst the glories of the Cathedral must be counted the stained glass.
Belle Vue Methodist Church is a registered Eco-Congregation, which means its members take a concern for environmental issues, and this has heavily influenced the redevelopment plans. Members of the church hope the community will feel able to support the exciting development which will mean a lot to the Belle Vue community for many years. The building will enjoy some of the best environmental credentials with the highest insulation properties, solar panels, and triple glazing. It will also be equipped with modern facilities including Wi-Fi and a well-equipped kitchen, so that community groups will be able to rent a really outstanding building.
