Guide Lane Methodist Church
The Wesley Methodist Society was formed in Hooley Hill in 1786 by a dissident group of members from the Red Hall Methodist Church, Audenshaw.

In 1806 a new purpose built Chapel and Sunday School was built. A large cottage adjacent to the Chapel was converted for school use with the girls taught upstairs and the boys downstairs. A new school building was added in 1855. This building was then replaced in 1901 by the two-storey school which was in use until 1950.

The buildings on Guide Lane were closed in 2004. The fellowship joined with Bridge Street United Reformed Church SJ9297 : Former Audenshaw United Reformed Church SJ9297 : Former Audenshaw United Reformed Church and Red Hall Methodist Church SJ9197 : Red Hall Chapel 1876 datestone to form Trinity Church SJ9197 : Trinity Church - Audenshaw on Audenshaw Road, Audenshaw.
