Attendance has grown to around 1,400 on Sundays, with a third (repeat) service planned for the end of Sept 2009 to accommodate the growth.

There was a Church of Christ the King at the bottom of Braybon Avenue in Patcham. I'm not sure what denomination has it now but it was C of E. My parents started attending worship there in the 1930s church hall. I think the church was built next door in the '60s. The first vicar I recall was the Reverend Shrimpton.

I have now discovered that the church I referred to above is now "Immanuel" church.
