The wooden mission church was consecrated on Monday 7 February 1876 by the Bishop of Ripon. It was designed and built by Messrs. R. Whitley & Nephew at a cost of between £500 and £600, and could seat 300 people. The footprint of the building was 62 feet by 29 feet.[1]

By the early 1890s, the renaming of local roads led to the building becoming the Merton Street Mission Church.[2]

Although the building is marked on the 1960 O.S. Town Plan, it was no longer labelled as a church.
