Holgate Methodist Church lies on the south-east corner of Acomb Road and New Lane. Around 1872, the Wesleyan Wilton Street Mission was built in red brick with white brick ornamentation in Wilton Street (now part of Wilton Rise). The Holgate Chapel opened on 14 September 1910 and Wilton Street Chapel was sold to the Railwaymen's Mission. In 1955 it was used by the Salvation Army. The replacement chapel, built in red brick with a gable, seats 350 persons. [The History Files]
