The church opened in 1861. It is seen here in 1917, with the School room on the right.

The Sunday School Anniversary celebrated on Easter Sunday, 8 April 1917, attracted large congregations. The preacher for the day was Rev J Grainger, of Wrexham, but the morning service was unique. They decided to hold a ‘Soldiers’ Letter Service’. All the young men away fighting in the armed forces were asked to write a letter to be read out in the service, and extracts from the letters were published.

In 1975 the church joined to form New Church, Trinity.
