The church was built soon after a separate congregation was established from Glen Lynden in 1890. With the outbreak of the First Anglo-Boer War in 1899 the building was commandeered by the British military authorities, the clockworks removed, the pipe-organ vandalized and a Maxim Machine gun mounted atop the tower. With the end of hostilities the building was repaired and reconsecrated. (Maeder, 1917: 137)
