Brief history of the church

The church was founded in 1933 as a plant by Kingston Congregational Church, in response to the needs of the new housing development in Berrylands. The church building was opened in 1934, the Raeburn Hall was added in 1957, and the Elgar Hall and caretakers’ flat in 1965. There have been seven Ministers since 1934.
