This building started life as the Hanover Chapel which was built in 1825 as an independent chapel. It was purchased by the Presbyterians in 1844 until it merged in 1972 with Union Church (subsequently demolished), Queen Square (also by that time URC). It was rebuilt behind the fa├žade as Brighthelm URC, facing North Road in 1987. The original attractive facade remains facing Church Street across a garden.
