A Mission room was established in 1873 using a cottage at Mount Top and a chapel and Sunday School were built in Raikes Lane in 1880; the chapel was subsequently enlarged in 1904.

The chapel closed in 1977 and the congregation joined St John's Methodist Church. The building was converted into a house
