Chapel History

St. John the Evangelist Liverpool [a chapelry] was erected on the old site of the castle in the year 1836. It stood within the parish boundaries of St Nicholas, Liverpool.

From Lewis' Topographical Dictionary, we read, "St. John the Evangelist's chapel, Hope-street, another unconsecrated place of worship in connexion with the Established Church, is also a plain structure, with a stuccoed front. It was built in 1836, for the Christian Society, but was purchased by Mr. Cargill, and opened March 21st, 1841, as an episcopal chapel; that gentleman died in the year 1843, and the chapel is now leased from his widow by Henry Winch, Esq., who is patron: the surplus proceeds are applied towards the support of the Female Orphan Asylum."[1]
