Church History

The church was founded as an outreach of Leys Hill Baptist Church in 1857 (formerly in Walford, just over the border in Hereford) which is now sadly closed.  Our present building, built of Forest stone, was opened on November 14th 1864. Major additions to the building include the balcony, installed in 1874 and the organ, installed in 1908.  We have just taken delivery of a lovely new Yamaha Clavinova which is helping to enhance our musical ministry.

The building has changed little over the years, except for the replacement of the pews with modern chairs and carpet. 

At the rear of church is the burial ground, now closed. We have some records of the graves there, and there is open access for anyone who wishes to visit a family grave (please exercise due care and attention as some memorial stones may be unstable). You may access records of burials from 1912 onwards here.
