The foundation stone was laid on 2 April 1847 by John North Esq. of New House, followed by an addressed given by the Rev. John Verity of Barnsley. The congregation's former place of worship was the Spring Street Primitive Methodist Chapel (seemingly known as the "Ranter's Chapel"), which was to be demolished "for the purposes of the new railways".[1]

A Sunday School was built alongside the chapel in the late 1880s.
