The Kineton Chapel was first registered for worship in the Court of the Bishop of Worcester
on 10th October 1842. By February 1844 Kineton appeared on the Banbury Circuit Plan until it became the Kineton Circuit Church in 1846. It was registered for the Solemnization of Marriages on 13th March 185. In 1893 the old chapel was pulled down and on Wednesday 21st June the foundation stones of a new, enlarged building were laid amidst much celebration which included the Tysoe band and 'a somewhat lengthy address'! There was a further meeting in the evening where a collection contributed towards the overall cost of £920. The new chapel was formerly opened on Monday 4th December 1893.

Just prior to the Second World War the Trustees decided to add a hall at the back of the premises and in order to do so, after the war, purchased 2 cottages and large gardens on the north side. The hall was built by Briskers' Builders and opened and dedicated on Saturday 2nd October 1954.

The chapel underwent a major refurbishment in 1987 and the hall in 1992 using money from the sale of Chapel Cottage and Gibbs Cottage and excess land at the rear of the premises where part of Battle Court now stands.

From September 2009 the church has been part of the Mid-Warwickshire Circuit.
