In 1914, it was decided that the work of the Wilkinson Road Methodist Church Circuit should extend to the Garden City area. On September 14, 1914, a work bee constructed the new church building, and shortly thereafter Garden City Methodist Church was dedicated. It remained a part of the Wilkinson Road Circuit, and after church union the two congregations remained related as the Wilkinson Road-Garden City Pastoral Charge.
