This fine stone building, erected in 1911, was established by Reverend William English, who had been preaching in the area since 1908. The Romanesque building was designed by architects Rudder & Grout. The land for the Church was purchased in 1910 and construction began the following year.  

The Church was closed in 1940 due to a dwindling membership but re-opened in 1947 after restoration took place with assistance from the Zinc Corporation and community.  

The building was sold for residential purposes in 1974.
