All of the maps I've been able to consult show this a "Meeting Room", including maps pre-dating 1905 by decades, so perhaps this was the date of a re-build.
Paul Wood (2003).
Brampton Abbotts, the Norman St. Michael and All Angels. Two additional views - 1, 2, and the churchyard gate. At the time of Dennis' visit, the church was not being used for worship because of problems with the roof, and services were being held in a local school, and the village hall.

Colwall Stone, Community Church. According to the church website, the building was erec
ted "for the use of the labourers who built the railway tunnel", though whether it was built as a church or for some other use isn't specified. SO 7560 4261. Paul Wood (2003).
Cradley, St. James the Great. The stump of a medieval preaching cross in the churchyard has been converted into a sun-dial. SO 7359 4713. Grade II* listed. The sun-dial has its own (very short) grade II listing. The Countess of Huntingdon Chapel (1823). SO 7270 4713.
The former Snail Bank Mission Room, now in residential use. The building was in the process of being converted at the time of Paul's visit, and he was told that a tower had been removed stone by stone, and transported to Australia, to repair an almost identical tower that had been damaged in a storm. If anyone can add to this story I'd be glad to hear from you! SO 7144 4800. All Paul Wood (2003).

A 2009 Streetview hints that it may still have been active at that time (church notice board is still displaying information) but according to this link a planning application had been raised in 2014 for conversion to a holiday let. Both Paul Wood (2000).

Nokelane Head, Northwood Primitive Methodist Chapel. This stands on a country road at SO 3620 5945; the nearest settlement of any size is Staunton on Arrow, to the north-east. On a tithe map of 1842 the plot of land has a cottage and garden. The chapel appears to have been added as an extension, and what appears to be the original cottage can be seen on Streetview, here.
