St. John’s Church was delivered by Harrods on the back of a lorry and cost £120. It was very much the ‘flat pack’ of its day. It was one of many hundreds of Tin Tabernacles that were built across the country as an affordable way for communities to get their own church. 

Read the full and fascinating history of the church in the guidebook which is available in the church.
