In 1936 the church was repaired and moved to a new site as a Sunday School and parish hall and a new church was begun, consecrated in 19 September 1946 and deconsecrated 7 July 1997.

St Paul's Church at Derby was opened in 1893 and the last service was held 13 July 1997. Derby was formerly known as Brothers Home Mine.
