Originally built as a dual purpose building for worship and social life on a site given by Lady Wimborne, the hall-church was dedicated by the Right Rev. Maurice Keys, Bishop of Sherborne on St. Mark's Day- 25 April 1957. Nineteen years later on St. Mark's Day the new church was dedicated by the Right Rev. Victor Pike, Bishop of Sherborne and the hall then became the focus for the wider pastoral and social needs of the parish.
