Many families moved into the Blackburn North area in the 1950s and by the early 60's it was thought appropriate to build a church. A hall was built and dedicated in 1962 and became the hub for a growing and energetic Christian community. Over the subsequent 40 years the church continued to grow as people worked hard, prayed and gave generously of their time and resources. From 2001-2009 a major building project took place to upgrade the facilities and allow for future growth. These were opened in February 2009 and have assisted the church to keep growing.
St Alfred's was originally a plant of St John’s Blackburn but it was made an independent parish in the 1980s. Since then there have only been three vicars: Rev Graeme Sells, Rev Rob Carter and our current senior minister Rev Peter MacPherson.
2012 marks the 50th Anniversary of St Alfred's. Our history has been written and published as Windows on St Alfred's: A Church on the Move. Please contact the office if you would like a copy.
