The Rocks Chapel formerly stood in the corner of Old Road, facing the East Court Estate. It was established in the year 1847 by members of the Charlwood family and others, who withdrew from the Countess of Huntingdon's Connexion in April of that year. They made shift for a time in a temporary room and opened the chapel on Good Friday, March 29th, 1850, as a Congregational Church ; 20 years later the Primitive Methodists occupied it, and it continued in existence until Moat Church was established, when its supporters gradually dwindled and it was soon closed.

Providence Chapel, in the London Road, was built in 1891 and is occupied by the sect known as Strict Baptists. It has no resident minister.
