The Church has a history with Dalkeith which dates back to 1851 when the first branch was organised in May of that year. In 1964 the branch had the beginnings of the Church in modern times when meetings were held in the old Labour Hall at the bottom of the High Street, and later in Woodburn Community Centre.
The current building in Newbattle Road was opened in 1978, having been built with additional help from local members, both in terms of labour and financial contributions. Some 10 years later, a large extension was added and the building now comprises of a Chapel, a large multi-purpose hall, a baptismal font, offices and several classrooms. The extensive grounds, with ample car-parking facilities, also have a beautiful wood.
