Methodist Church1787 First Methodist missionary, Dr. Thomas Coke arrived. It was originally a dwelling house. 1800 The lot where the church is now was initially leased to Catholics who later converted to Wesleyan Methodism. Construction of the church began. 1840s There was tension between the Catholics and Methodists due to the close proximity of the churches, which led to riots during the 1840s. 1893 It was completed with the construction of the steeple. Close by is Wesley High School, a Methodist High School for girls. Captions: Rough 1920s sketch of the Bethesda Methodist Chapel. This 1902 photograph of Castle Street in Roseau, is looking west towards the sea and the junction of Church Street. This may have been a common view for parishioners exiting the Methodist Church. This would have been one of the routes used to get to the Roseau Market and the Bayfront.
