During the eighteenth century, the Countess of Stamford gave a small cottage with five acres of land to the church for the building of a Chapel of Ease (SJ7292 : St George's Church, Carrington) and vicarage. After many years the Vicarage became redundant and fell into disrepair.

The House Church, set up by a group of Christians from varied backgrounds, growing their own food and keeping animals, bought the Old Vicarage in the mid 1980s, moving north from their original location in Hampshire. A charity was set up and the grounds were landscaped to demonstrate that with Godís help Christians living in harmony and obedience to the Gospel of Christ could, through love, produce a veritable oasis amidst the industrial wasteland on all sides.
