A small chapel added to the rear of a farmhouse north of the town centre. It was built for a Catholic Lay Community called The Grail Community in 1957. The Grail Community left in 2012 and SPEC (Spiritual & Personal Encounter with Christ) took over the site in 2014. A tapestry of the Last Supper behind the altar is no longer in place, but a metal and ceramic Stations of the Cross by Caryl Houselander remains at the entrance end.
A church of 1958 by T.F. Ford was added to the original church of 1935 that then became a hall. The church has a large mural by Hans Feibusch behind the altar and four smaller ones of the apostles in the spandrels of the nave.
In recent years the further end of the old church has been demolished to give access to a new housing development. The front of the church has gained a glassed narthex and some meeting rooms off to one side.

The main worship space is up a staircase inserted into the former baptistry, the chancel area is now a medical centre, otherwise, it is a complex of offices, rooms, kitchen, offices etc.
