The church was opened by George & Kath Lambert in the Friends Meeting House which is owned by the Quakers. The exact date is uncertain but it was during the mid-70s.
Sadly Kath was taken ill and died a short time after the Church was opened.
Janet Chettle, who attended the same circle as George and Kath in Rushden, stepped in to help George run the Church.
Healing took place at the same venue on Monday evenings.
Janet and George continued to run the Church together until George became ill in 1989 when he sadly passed away.
The church then closed for a time when Janet's
daughter became ill and sadly passed away.
Janet re-opened the church with Richard Jeffrey
who then helped Janet in running the Church and
eventually, they married.
They continued running the church for some years
until Janet too became ill.

Unfortunately, Janet's poor health led to the Church
becoming closed again and it was Bob Riddle who
picked up the reins and re-opened the Church by
hiring a room at the Borstal.
Eventually, it moved back to St. John's Street where
it continues today.
Healing was then given after the service instead of
In 2013, Bob retired, handing over to Alison Savage, Rob Riddle, Jasmine Bailey, and Daphne Simmons
Alison resigned in February 2018. Rob Riddle retired Oct 2021.
Daphne Simmons followed in 2023.
The committee who are fundamental in keeping the running of events each week is now Jasmine Bailey and Sasha-Louise Bentham who volunteer their services to keep the doors of this wonderful church open whilst bringing the services into the modern era along with the help of numerous volunteers who help out each week.
