Previously known as Battyeford Primitive Methodist Church.

It is uncertain when this church was established, but a barn at Low Littlemoor was used for meetings. By 1854 premises in Stocks Bank Lane were being used and by 1863 a chapel had been built in Nab Lane. Although there were plans to demolish the chapel and use the site to build a new one and additional housing in 1987 this did not happen. The chapel was refurbished in 1996-1997 and re-opened in 1997.
