This church was on the north side of Bond St Chilwell towards Latrobe Terrace. and was built as a Primitive Methodist Church - one of several strands at the time. With gradual union of the various sub-denominations it closed in 1929 to enable the building to be moved to begin a new church in a new area. Most families moved to what was formerly a Wesleyan Methodist Church in Noble St.
