Was established in 1810 using a house in the street known as 'The Planks' for meetings before moving to a house in Fall Lane at Bridge End around 1815.

A chapel was built in Brougham Road in 1824 before being rebuilt in 1871. A Sunday School was built next door between 1897-1898.

The congregation joined with Marsden Congregational Church 1967-1968 to form a United Church using the Congregational Church's premises in Peel Street.

The chapel and Sunday School in Brougham Road were sold in 1969.

The church is still in existence in 2009 and is known as Marsden United Reformed/Methodist Church.
