Also known as Golcar Providence Methodist Church.

Established from Wellhouse Methodist New Connexion Church, Golcar in 1876.

A Sunday School was established in 1876 using Golcar Town School in Knowl Bank.

A chapel was built in Knowl Bank in 1878 and opened in 1879; this road was later known as Knowl Road.

A new chapel was built next door to the old one 1883-1884 and opened in 1885 with the old chapel being used as a Sunday School from 1884.

Around 1974 the Sunday School was sold for use as business promises. The chapel was altered in 1973-1975 by putting a floor at gallery level; the upper floor was used for services from 1973, lower floor for Sunday School from 1975.

The church is still in existence in 2009.
