MOUNT STREET CONGREGATIONAL MISSION ROOM

The Independent or Congregational Mission Room in Mount Street, Plymouth, was opened for divine worship on Monday February 15th 1858.  It was run in connection with the Norley Chapel and in 1890 was known as the Sherwell Congregational Chapel Mission Room.

It was stated that the cost of the site was 95 6s; the cost of the erection of the building was 260; and the cost of the architect, forms and gas installation amounted to almost 40.

The domestic missionary in charge of the Mission Room was Mr Jasper, who, along with his wife, was credited with changing this area from one of 'oaths and revelry' to that of 'praise and prayer'.
