The building was erected in 1876 as a Primitive Methodist Chapel whose congregation transferred to London Road in 1894/5. All through this time William Dinnick was the minister; he continued his ministry in the Methodists' new building. It then became the Railway Mission. The name was changed by the congregation, however the church remains Brighton Railway Mission. The Railway Mission is a national charity providing chaplaincy and other services to workers in the railway industry.
