Zion Bible Christian Chapel was built in 1830 and opened on the 1st January 1831.
The stone-laying ceremony of the  present chapel (United Methodist Chapel) took place
on the 25 July 1906  and the formal opening was on 25 September 1907.

An unusual feature on the outside of the chapel , placed there sometime after the first
World War, is a plaque giving the names of all men in the parish who had served in the
forces during the War. During the Second World War part of the premises were used
for showers and NAAFI for our troops and the American Forces (as there was a large camp in the parish which was also used for POW's).

In 1998 major renovation were carried out, the pews, the pulpit, the interior porch were all removed, floor made to one level, carpeted, 100 comfortable chairs provided, modern staging, PA and loop system installed.
