In 1995 Peter Halsey had a vision to represent church on the High Street.

In coming to Gosport, Hampshire, with his wife Elayne, this vision became a reality. In December 2013 Peter and Elayne were able to secure 30 High Street, Gosport on behalf of their family charity, The Grovelands Trust.

Within three months, they had been joined by several regular volunteer listeners drawn from the local church community.
