The former Congregational Church was opened ca. 1903 in the Mount Hermon district of Woking. Previously services had been held at Onslow Hall, in Guildford Road Woking. The plans for the new church were drawn up by William Howard Seth-Smith. However it seems that only the lecture halls were built and the church was not completed.
In 1972 the church became part of the new United Reformed Church, and in 2005 merged with the URC Church in White Rose Lane Woking. The church was demolished and the site is now a small housing development.
The site of the former church is located in the ecclesiastical parishan ecclesiastical parish is an administrative area within the Church of England or Roman Catholic church. It is distinct from the civil parish, a local government unit in England of Woking St. Mary Bethany which is around five or six minutes walk along York Road from the former church.
There was no graveyard at the former Congregational Church. However, Brookwood Cemetery is around four miles away; and Woking Crematorium around 2 miles distant.
The records for the former church are held at the Surrey History Centre.
The church was in the Woking district of Surrey.
Unless otherwise stated the dates for the creation of parishes are taken from Youngs, Frederick. A., jr.. Guide to the Administrative Units of England; Royal Historical Society: London, 1979 volume 1 Southern England.
