The church was built in 1906 and is of a typical Victorian style. However whilst the worship area remains original, about 20 years ago the old schoolroom was demolished and replaced by a modern hall, which is now connected to the older part. This has given us a very useful modern set of premises, which are used for a range of church activities and are let to a number of other groups. The Ashby Youth for Christ team use one of the rooms as their office and base. A smaller room is set-aside as a permanent prayer room.
Access to the church is either from Burton Road, or from the corner of the Co-op car park, where you can park for free for up to an hour but note that you must obtain and display a ticket from one of the machines in the car park. It costs £1 to park for a 2 hour period.
