History

1890 A "tin tabernacle" was built as an Anglican Mission in the parish of Harbledown. The bell is probably from that time too.
c 1940 The church was renamed and received the status of a full parish church. The wood-panelled interior features a stained glass window retrieved from a former church in Ramsgate which was damaged by World War II bombing.
