The Barracca Chapel

On Saturday 6th October 2001 the new premises of the Malta Stock Exchange were officially opened. The building itself, however, had occupied the site alongside the entrance to the Upper Barracca Gardens, Valletta, for more than 140 years.

It was built between 1854 and 1856 by the Royal Engineers, under the supervision of Lieut-Colonel Francis Ringler Thomson, and was designed by the military to serve as a chapel and a school for the British soldiers and their families.

Records of the correspondence and drawings can be seen in the War Office files, held at the Public Record Office, Kew, England.

The Methodists had withdrawn their Minister from Malta in 1844, and after an interval of twenty-four years, appointed the Reverend William Shaw Caldecott to the post. He and his successors officiated at 22 marriages held in the Barracca Chapel from 1868 until the newly built Methodist Church in Floriana was opened in 1883.
