The former Margate Methodist Church building was acquired by the Margate Christian Church, in 1974, although Methodist services continued in the building for some time. Methodist services, conducted in private homes, began in the district as early as the 1860s. Later services were held in a simple church building and then the local school. When it became too small, the present church building was erected and opened in February 1902. No other details are known. More historical information/photographs of the former church/congregation are invited. Photograph uploaded 2/5/2023.
