History and Architecture:

This church was formerly a Methodist church. The Foundation stone of the current church was laid on 12 November 1888 by the Honourable C.H. James M.L.C. The Architect was A Dunn. The South Preston Methodists built their first church in High Street Preston which served them until 1879 when a new one was built. In 1889 this was replaced by a new church in Yann Street. Due to dwindling numbers the church was passed to the Greek Orthodox Church at a combined Methodist-Greek Orthodox service on the 5th of February 1967. It is now the Orthodox church of Saint Cyril and Methodius.
