Church History

It was founded in 1842. In 1840 the Baptists opened the Branch Road Tabernacle, as Montague Street used to be called. This closed in 1910 and the new church (as in the photograph ) was opened in May 1911. This closed in 1960, the building was later demolished and the site used as a car park for the College. The site is now under some new College building.
