Founded in 1840 in a former Methodist church the building was later rebuilt with a lecture hall downstairs and the church upstairs. A church with a radical history in both theology and, at times, in its political leanings, it was destroyed in the blitz of 1941 although the congregation found a new home as part of All Souls’ Church in Belfast in 1944.
