The congregation was established in 1824 but was unable to build a chapel and the number of members dwindled.

Regular meetings began again in 1833 using two houses and a chapel was built on the west side of High Street in 1840; a Sunday School was built in 1860.

The chapel closed in 1993 and there were plans to convert the chapel building into a community centre in 1993.
