Notes:

In 1875 Mr. James Mowl opened his home, Hedley House, for a Sunday evening service. By January 1876 the numbers had so grown that the Worth Mission Hall in New Street, Three Bridges had to be built and this was further extended in 1884. Mr. Mowl led the work for 23 years as superintendent; the Evangelisation Society providing many of the Sunday preachers. The Membership of the Church was formed in 1933; prospective members were asked to give assent to the Basis of Faith.
The land on which the present building stands was purchased in 1958. The present Church was dedicated and opened on the 21st September 1963.
