St George’s Church Hall was built in 1902 by CM Orland Scott/Henry Martin the Builder of Northampton, being built for St George’s Church and the Parish which it served. It appears on official maps of the time as St George’s Sunday School & Parish Institute. It has a stone plaque high in the wall to this very day, stating “For God and His Church”, as it was used to serve both St George’s Church and the Parish (Community) in which it stood. It is deliberately situated on the cross roads of Creed Street, Church Street, and St Georges Way.
In 1987, St George’s Church Hall was sold by the Bishop of Buckingham to Madcap, which latterly changed name to Creed Street Arts Centre. During the many years as Creed Street Arts Centre the building served Arts & Dance and the General Community.
In 2014, the property was going to auction for commercial sale, but having been registered as a Community Asset, was purchased by King’s Church and became King’s Church Hall & Community Centre, now called King’s (Church) Community Centre.
King’s Church have worked in and served the Wolverton Community since 1984, hiring Wolverton schools for services, children’s and youth clubs and the like. This building has now provided them a home to continue to serve the community.
King's Community Centre is joined with King's Church who are restoring Wesley's Old Methodist Church, Wolverton.
The Grade II Listed Building is one of the four major show pieces of Wolverton.
It has suffered 20 years of neglect, however King's Church are giving this historical building a chance to shine again with a huge restoration plan.
