The 1903 Christian Messenger tells us that Deal was missioned in 1848.

“The present (1903) chapel has rendered valuable service since its erection in 1852. It is free of debt, and about £120 is in hand towards the new erection. The proposal is to take down the cottage, build a neat, modern structure to seat about 250 people, and adapt the present chapel for Sunday school, week evenings, and other meetings. Some time ago I laid our new scheme before the Missionary Committee. It was warmly approved, and a generous promise of £200 was made towards the undertaking. With this scheme accomplished, and a minister stationed at Deal, a new and brighter future will open for our church there.”

Street View shows the Age Concern Deal Centre on the site in 2015.

Was the replacement chapel ever built?
