The church has a long history, going back to the 1850ís, of involvement with the community and support to people who are vulnerable because of the effects of poverty.
This photo was taken during the coal strike in 1912, when the church was providing tea for families suffering hardship. The church was described as being more in the nature of a community hall than a church, being adapted to the character of work need to be done in the district.
