HistoryEdit

This church was built 1910 to designs by George Baines (1852–1934) for the Congregational Union in a perpendicular style using a greek cross floorplan. It features a tall, square tower in the south-west corner and has attached church rooms to the north. Its bulk materials were red brick, stone, white brick and terracotta dressings with coloured tile roofs.[2]

In 1941 the new minister of the church was Elsie Chamberlain. She would go on to be a leader in the church and to help found the Congregational Federation in 1972.[3]
