1836 building taken in 1960s
1877 church taken late 1960s early 1970s
The 1836 Building was the original Church and Sunday School. Worship took place upstairs and the class rooms were all down stairs. This building became the Sunday school from 1877 and was later extended rearwards to create a full size stage for the Operatic and Dramatic Societies and more rooms downstairs. It was demolished late 1966 and replaced by the current church hall etc.
The very large 1877 church, was designed by the celebrated Manchester Architect Edward Salomons. This building was replaced in 1974 by the present church building.
The space, as viewed, to the right of the church hall and to the left of the 1877 church building was the grave yard, extending forward to the boundary wall. This was levelled and became part of the car park when the 1967 church hall was built.
In 1972 the Congregational church joined with the English Presbyterian church to become the United Reformed Church.
