Founded in 1902 to serve migrant Zulu workers, services were held in an old bakery on the site which was destroyed by snow in 1909. Pastor Je Nornius raised the funds to build the church including basement space for adult education classes. He and evangelist, Petro Kumalo, had offered these since the inception of the Mission. The manse was built in 1905, the bell-tower in 1928 and the hall in 1954.
