History

The church was founded in 1833 as Compstall Primitive Methodist Chapel. It was rebuilt in 1867 and extended to two storeys in 1893, at which time it was re-named Jubilee.

In 1932 the Primitive Methodists united nationally with the other branches of the Methodist church to form the Methodist Church of Great Britain.

Between 1960 and 2000, three neighbouring Methodist churches (Hollywood, Mellor and George Street Compstall) closed down and most of their members transferred to Jubilee.
