Building history

The first church on the site was converted from a cottage by Primitive Methodists. The first purpose-built chapel constructed in 1823, then rebuilt in 1841 and in 1863. A completely new building, designed by Augustus Frederic Scott was built in 1914 and gained Grade II listed status in 2003.

In 2010 it underwent a major refurbishment which included improved accessibility, sound system and a new organ console, though with the original 1929 Binns organ being retained.


It is a member of the 'Church at Castle' ecumenical partnership with St Augustine's, St Giles' (Anglican), St Luke's (Anglican/URC) and St Peter's.
