The first chapel was erected 1824[1] at a cost of about £450. This was replaced by a new chapel built in 1871 (costing £1,750) which was then extended in 1898.

The congregation merged with the Congregational Church circa 1968 to form the current-day Marsden United Church and the Wesleyan Church and Sunday School were sold off in 1969.[2] The building was later demolished and site is currently home to Marsden Infant & Nursery School.
