Church History

The church was founded as an outreach of Lays Hill Baptist Church (formerly in Walford, just over the border in Hereford, but now sadly closed) in 1857. 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.

The building has changed little over the years, except for the removal of the pews and the addition of those modern conveniences, gas heaters and electric lighting.

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.
