Northgate Methodist Church was built in 1927-28, Architect: C.E. Plant. The Methodists had wanted a church in Northgate from 1913. It was not until after WWI that the congregation and funds arose to enable this church to be built. An architect-designed, English Gothic-style brick church, with its distinctive bell watchtower, was opened at a prominent position on the corner of Northgate Roads and Peary Street, in September 1928. It was sited close to the School of Arts and the local shops in the developed, hilly, part of Northgate between Sandgate Road and the railway. After the 1977 amalgamation of the Methodist, Presbyterian and Congregational Churches, it became a Uniting Church. With a declining congregation, it has been sold as a private residence.
