Plans to build a Sunday school on the Ferry Lane Methodist Church started out in the 1920s, but it was not until the 1968 that the single storey flat roofed building, some 40ft square was completed. Built almost entirely by the labour of church members the Sunday school was opened by Mrs Ada Lakin, who was at the time the oldest member of the congregation, aged 81. Built at a cost of £2,000 the building cost a fraction of what it would have if built by professional tradesmen. The building contained a main hall, kitchen, primary school and two sets of toilets and cloakrooms with large windows and was decorated throughout with bright pastel colours. Mr E. Dodd, secretary of the Church Trust, who with Mr Mcavoy (son in law of Mrs Lakin) were in overall charge of the job during the construction, which had taken some six years. Rev F O. Hutchings spoke at the time of the long struggle in getting the work done, but praised local people for their help. One local in particular, a builder, Mr R A Bagnall supplied all the supervision and know how through out the project and managed to obtain necessary materials for the work. The Sunday school was dedicated by Rev W. H. Dixon, superintendent of the Wakefield Methodist Circuit, and a thanksgiving service was led by Rev R. J. Hall, who was Minister at the church during the 1940s. After a special tea prepared by the ladies of the church, there was a concert by Sharlston Male Voice Choir.
