In the middle distance, Northgate Hall has gone through a variety of functions. Originally, as the architecture suggests, it was a Primitive Methodist chapel, but was rendered redundant by the union of Methodist groups in 1932, so from 1933 to 1991 was used as the headquarters of the Oxford Inter-Collegiate Christian Union. From the early 1990s it was a drop-in centre and café for homeless people (Gatehouse) and also housed the Oxford Lesbian and Gay Community Centre. In 2005 the Oxford Lesbian and Gay Community Centre moved away and in 2011 Gatehouse was given notice by the city council on the grounds that the building was under-occupied and too expensive to maintain. The building is now a bar and its Primitive Methodist founders doubtless turn in their graves.
