Church History

It was founded in 1876.

The Methodist Chapel in Lower Darwen held its final service on Sunday 7 January 2001. The Methodist congregation started worshipping at Lower Darwen URC, Sandy Lane the following week (Sunday 14 Jan). The Methodist and United Reformed Churches were formally joined and renamed Trinity Church, Lower Darwen at an Inauguration and Signing service on 12 January 2003.

The stained glass windows from the Methodist chapel are now installed in Trinity Church.

In 1972 the Congregational church joined with the English Presbyterian church to become the United Reformed Church.
