During the 1950s the City Council developed a very large area on the eastern edge of the city boundary for social housing, commonly known as the Heartsease Estate. Much of this estate has become owner-occupied following the sell-off of council housing.
The new hall and rooms were multi-purpose and intended specifically for Sunday school and youth work, with a new worship centre to be erected alongside in due course. By the turn of the century the church was bursting at the seams on Sunday mornings, and it became evident that a new building was urgently needed. A building project began and phase one, a new worship centre, was completed in October 2010. Phase two comprising a reception area, new toilets, new meeting rooms and the complete re-landscaping of the site was completed in July 2013. The church enjoyed a brilliant weekend of celebration at the official opening with special guests Saltmine Theatre Company and Worship Leader, Luke Hamlyn.
