In 1859, the first Methodist church in Heswall was built in Milner Rd and was known as Gayton Wesleyan Church. In 1891 the foundation stone of the present building was laid, the former one eventually becoming the Heswall laundry.
The new building on Telegraph Rd was registered as Centenary Methodist Chapel as it was built 100 years exactly after the death of John Wesley. A vestry was added in 1893 and schoolrooms added in 1894. 1908 saw the formation of a Boy’s Brigade unit and a Girl’s class.
Extra premises were added in 1926 in the form of a timber hut to the rear of the schoolroom but later demolished in 2018. It was not until 1938 that the schoolrooms and the church were inter-connected by the addition of cloakrooms, kitchen and corridors. Further additions in 1975 included a foyer, a church office, and a larger kitchen.
In 2009 the chapel (worship area) of the church was refurbished. The pews were removed and replaced by comfortable movable chairs. This made the church much more flexible to meet the needs of a changing church. The pulpit was eventually removed in 2010.
