Established in c1821 using rented premises, the chapel was built in Moor Lane in 1850, a Sunday School built next door to the chapel in 1870, the chapel was demolished in 1872 and a new one was built on the same site that year. The chapel closed in 1964 and the congregation amalgamated with West Lane and little Gommersal chapels to form Gomersal Trinity Methodist Church using the premises at West Lane.
