Boyle church, otherwise known as Boyle Federal church, is the result of an early co-operation agreement between the Methodist Church and the Presbyterian Church in the town of Boyle. The small congregations in the two separate churches agreed to join together and to meet for worship in the Presbyterian church, since it was in better repair, with services there conducted on alternate Sundays by the Methodist and Presbyterian ministers. Meanwhile, the old Methodist church was sold and has since been demolished.
Boyle Methodist church and its successor, the Methodist & Presbyterian church, were part of the Drumshanbo Methodist circuit, which later amalgamated with the Sligo circuit to form the Sligo & Drumshanbo circuit (renamed the North Connacht circuit in 2002). The minister residing in Drumshanbo was responsible for the Boyle Methodist members, and preached in Boyle on alternate Sundays. When falling numbers resulted in the withdrawal of the Drumshanbo minister, the responsibility passed to the minister residing in Sligo.
