Our beginnings

Croydon SDA Church can trace back its beginnings to the early 1900s. Throughout the years the Church has used several premises, two of which were in Woodside and Sydenham Road respectively, and in Croydon during the 1960s and 1970s. We moved to our current location in 1978.

Seventh-day Adventists have been in Britain since the 1870s. The earliest bases were in Southampton, on Humberside and in Northamptonshire. The Adventist Church was officially organised in Britain in 1902. In 1907 the Church established its headquarters in Stanborough Park, north of Watford, Hertfordshire, which for many decades accommodated the educational, publishing, health and health food institutions of the church. Stanborough Park continues to be the home of the British Union headquarters, the Stanborough Secondary and Junior Schools, and the Adventist Discovery Centre.  As British society became more diverse in the last half century, so this diversity has come to be reflected in the membership, ministry and leadership of the Church.
