The Holy Spirit Harlescott
The parish of Harlescott was originally a part of the ancient Parish of ST Alkmunds. With the growth of the industrial estates in the North of Shrewsbury, and all the housing which came with it it grew until it was deemed right for it to be a parish in it's own right. There have been three churches of this name, an old "tin Tabernacle" superseded by the church on Roselyn, which then became too small & thus we now have the "new" church on Meadow Farm Drive.
On the closure of the local Methodist Chapel the members were invited to join the church family at The Church of the Holy Spirit & a local ecumenical partnership was formed to honour the Anglican & Methodist traditions from which the congregation grew.
