Notes:

The church building was erected during 1870 and 1871 as a Christian Mission and dedicated by William Booth in 1871. William Booth is better known as General Booth of the Salvation Army, which he later founded. His wife, Catherine, laid the foundation stone on Thursday, July 6th, 1871.
The church became a United Methodist Chapel in 1907 and on the occasion of the Methodist Union in 1932 three branches of the Methodist Church, the Wesleyan, the Primitive and the United joined to become one church.
In 1958 the Church was extensively renovated. In 1979 a hall and kitchen were added. The hall is now a popular venue for many church and village activities.
