The former Rozelle Methodist Church closed about 1910, and the property was eventually sold. The church building was erected about 1880, and ceased functining as a church about 1910. It was probably closed due to the amalgamation of a number of Methodist churches, after the formation of the Methodist Church, from a number of strands, in the early 1900s. Prior to the erection of the church building services were conducted in private homes. No other details are known. More historical information/photographs of the former church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 30/1/2021 & 28/1/2023.
