Randolph-Macon College Choir Visit High House Chapel as part of their UK Tour

Randolph-Macon College is the oldest affiliated Methodist College in the USA. In January 2018 their choir decided to make a tour of UK, and their research brought them to High House Chapel, the oldest purpose built Methodist Chapel in continuous weekly use.


We opened specially for their visit and invited them to sing in the chapel as part of their visit. They had an organist among their company and sang three hymns and a blessing.

If you have a group and would like to visit the Weardale Museum and High House Chapel, we'd love to hear from you.


We provide a talk about the chapel as part of the visit and you can sing or have a service if you wish, but you don't have to be a religious group to enjoy a visit and learn about our history.
