Springside Methodist Church came into being because of an increase of members at Longholme Church following a visit by Murphy the temperance reformer. The first church was known as the Tin Mission and it's foundation stone was laid on the 10th of June 1882. This building served the congregation until the early nineteen hundreds when on the 15th October 1904 the foundation stone was laid for a new church. The second church was built a cost of £2,000 and held its first service in October 1905. The church finally closed its door in 1968. The building is now a private dwelling split into ten appartments.
