A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE HALL

The story begins back in 1895 when Mr. Bishop of The Church Army held meetings from his caravan on Mill Green Common. Out of this and a three week visit by Mr. Humphries of The Counties Work the following year, grew a group of dedicated Christians. They met on The Common during the summer and used available local homes when the colder, darker days prevailed.

Various meetings were held at Woodside Cottages including a regular children’s group attended by around forty, ranging in age from four to fifteen! More space was needed and a Sunday School commenced in a larger home, now known as Ivy Cottage. This also became the venue for other activities including the mid-week prayer meeting and Bible teaching.

As numbers increased so did the need for a permanent place for meeting. After much prayer the decision was taken to build. With twenty-four in fellowship work began, costing a total of £303 11/9d and was completed in November 1902.

The Hall remained architecturally similar for many years but in the early eighties it was extended and modernised to accommodate a range of activities; the work being completed in 1984.

Recent improvements to the building in 2007 include new entrance doors and double glazed windows in the front hall.
