In 1965 the premises were again remodelled and a large hall was added specifically to serve the needs of the local community. In 1979 a severe arson attack removed the roof of the church, and a year later a further attack caused smoke damage to the large hall. These events caused us to question whether we should continue, but in faith we rebuilt and made changes, and, although minor alterations have been made since, this is basically the church premises we have today.
Our premises are well-used by the local community and we provide facilities for a wide range of different activities.

Although not a large church (just over 50 members), people have remarked on our warm and welcoming atmosphere. Our congregation encompasses all ages, from babies to 90+, and many different ethnic backgrounds. In addition to our Sunday services we have a growing Junior Church. We also have regular Bible Studies, a monthly house-group, and a weekly social club.
