The foundation stone was laid on 28 July 1866 and the first services were given in April 1868. The total cost of around £3,700 was partly offset by an anonymous "benevolent lady" who gifted £1,300 to the Rev. W. Hodgkiss. The architects were Messrs. Healey of Bradford and the following surnames were recorded as the contractors:[1]

  • masons — Messrs. Hampshire
  • joiner: Umpleby
  • plasterer: Tunnacliffe
  • slater: Goodwin
  • painters: Webster & Depledge
  • plumbers: Messrs. Chadwick

The church was demolished during construction of the new Wakefield Road in the late 1980s and replaced by the current United Reform Church.
