Inspired by the preaching of John Wesley in the area, the first small meeting house at Illogan Highway was built by local tin miners in 1843. As the numbers attending worship increased, a second building was erected in 1888 and when this also became too small, a new larger chapel building was completed in 1903.
The composer Thomas Merritt was the chapel organist for several years and his Christmas carols are still sung in the area each year.
In March 2002 a new link building was dedicated which provides access to the three buildings and incorporated modern toilets (including disabled facilities) and a new boiler room.
There is a Junior Church and the meeting room is used by a self-help group (CODA) on Tuesday evenings.
The membership grew in 2012 due to the transfer of some members from Pool Methodist Church and also, more recently, some members from Paynters Lane End and Carn Brea Churches.
