Administrative/Biographical history:

The site in Stormont Road was purchased in 1877 by the London Congregational Union. A lecture hall and school premises were erected in 1878. The hall was used for public worship from 1879. A formal meeting was held in November 1881 for the formation of a Christian church. The Revd Richard Bulmer was elected pastor. The church that was built following that meeting was demolished in 1969 and replaced by a more 'modern' structure.
