It was then used by The Bible Christian Methodists until 1840 when the Chrisian Brethren bought it. The Brethren sold it in 1965 when they moved to their New Octagon Chapel on East Reach. It became a night club. but was subsequently closed down. It became part of a preservation and redevelopment scheme which was completed in 1990.
