The Christian Messenger carries an insight into Ushaw Moor chapel

“Ushaw Moor Church is in the making. With the assistance of the Church Extension Fund a new building has been erected. Special attention has been given to Sunday school accommodation and requirements in providing a number of suitable classrooms besides the large school room. The membership is small, but active, generous, full of courage and confidence, and right nobly are they taking their heavy burden. They are known by the name of “the church which knows how to raise money,” so gallantly have they done. But that is a secret which all churches may know if they have the will. Ushaw Moor Church has the heart to give. Mr. J.C. Surtees is Society steward, and looks well after church affairs. He has given a son to the ministry in the person of Rev. A. Surtees. The district is a growing one, and provides a fine field for evangelistic efforts; but unceasing vigilance will be needed, as clubdom is strong and Roman Catholicism prevalent.”

On Street View in 2016 the chapel still exists, with building work going on, under the name Chapel House.
