The church was originally built as a Church of Christ in about 1908.
It was taken over by the United Reformed Church in 1981.
A supporting statement said the building would be retained in full with a two-storey extension to the rear to create an open plan kitchen, dining area and lounge on the ground floor which opens to the garden and a morning area and roof terrace on the first floor.
The statement added: “This proposal seeks to create a distinct, comfortable living space that brings a disused church back into use.”
Councillors will consider the application in due course.
