Built for the congregation of the King Street chapel who had been forced to vacate their premises as a result of improvements by the corporation, the new chapel was opened on Sunday 22 February 1874 after six months under construction.

The new building comprises a chapel containing seats for 325 persons, a school for 300 children and 11 vestries and classrooms, where 100 more children may be accommodated, are of brick, relieved by stone bands externally. The style is plain Gothic. An organ loft has been placed in the chapel and the latter is lit by five three-light windows on either side and a large five-light window, placed over the porch, in the principal gable. The total cost of the undertaking has amounted to ,3000, towards which about ,2600, including compensation from the corporation, donations and the proceeds from collections has been obtained. Messrs Maycock & Bell, Manchester, were the architects and Mr Whitell, Barnes Green was the contractor. [Salford Weekly Chronicle 28 February 1874 Page 2]
