Currently we worship in the Age Concern Hall. The church building in Bute Terrace served us well from 1837, but in 2017, due to its state of disrepair, we were no longer able to use it.

 

Now is the time to relocate and build a new church which will have facilities “Not just for Sundays” but for the wider community.

 

Our location will still be on Bute Terrace but further along the road next to the Primary School. The estimated cost of this project falls between £750,000 and £1m. We see this as a significant challenge, nonetheless we believe with God’s help this can be done.
