My parents, Annie & Jimmy Lee, were married in this church by special licence on Christmas Day 1941. My dad was in the Royal Marines for the duration of World War II but was given compassionate leave for the wedding.

This picture brings back happy memories; with my Brother Trevor I was a choir boy here from 1942..1946. The Minister was the Rev. Southgate. As we have just lost my Sister Mavis on the 12th.March 2005 the picture is a reminder of very happy times when we were "growing up"!!

I too attended this church in the 70s and early 80s. Happy memories. The vicar at the time was Michael Nuttall followed by Desmond Young. I lived in Oak Tree Mount, a stones throw from the church. Brings back memories.

I was married in this church in 1966. My bride lived in the nearby Briarsdale Heights. The East window is constructed as a series of vertical slots - this picture does not do it justice. I believe that the building may have been given 'listed' status. It is certainly unusual enough.

I was christened in this church and after my Mum passed away my Dad re-married there too. I lived in Easterly Cross and I went back there last year. I agree with you Ann, It's certainly not changed for the better.
