The church was built in 1890, and interestingly, the main internal structure resembles a cross in its layout. The building features red brick, exposed beams, a bell tower and stained glass windows. The current congregation has been worshipping here since 1991, and we also have a worship centre in Ringwood.
Members of the church play an active role in the community. Our Pastoral Care Group runs services at local nursing homes and holds luncheons for the elderly.
As well as contributing to worship at our weekly Sunday services, our choir also sings at community events such as the Canterbury Garden Carols.
Our youth group, too, performs at various events, such as fundraisers for members of the community, and cultural and sporting occasions.
All are welcome to get involved!
