I spent a lot of my teenage years in this church made a lot of friends. Where are they now ? Rev Henry was the first minister I  remember. Then a long time after we had the Rev B W Stohhart he came from England  his wife was called Vera. It was during this time I became a Deacon. we had some great times then taking the kids to Southport if you new me let me know love to here of your memories.

Hi Colin
You're before my time so not sure if you'll know who I'm talking about but I used to go to a girls club run from John Whites by a woman who I can only remember as living further down Tennent St on the same side as the church. I think she might have been called Maggie. I remember that she seemed to have something to do with everything that went on in the church. I remember going to Sunday School and church particularly for Harvest and Easter services and going on bus runs to the seaside in the summer. My mum and dad played bowls for a while in rooms at the back of the church somewhere! Happy days :-)

Hi there and welcome to the forum. Yes indeed Maggie was the caretaker always about the place . We lived just across the street from her. My sister Joan was in the GB she is older than me you might well know her. It was a great church to belong to. During the troubles we started a coffee bar and had a lot of local teens going to it.
I remember the Sunday school well and the indoor bowls at the back of the church.
Thanks for the post

Just discovered this site.  I was in the Girls Club and also went to John Whites school, then St Matthews.  Would love to hear from others.  I lived in Tennent Street.

That's interesting info... I knew my grandfather attended John White's School (way back in the 1920s), but I didn't know where it was or if there was anything left of it. They lived on Tennent St, so that all fits.
