The church building was acquired by the Catholic Church in 1882, it had previously been a Methodist Chapel (1865-1870), and renamed it St John's. The building was enlarged and renovated in 1897, 1929 and 1966 to meet the needs of the congregation. No other details are known. More historical information/photographs of the church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 20/1/2020.
