The south porch was built on to the church in 1879 and later extended in 1993/4 to join up with the entrance to the new church hall. It houses both the south entrance to the church, with a wheelchair ramp, and also an entrance to the church hall.

The extension was described as a "very attractive porch joining the church and the hall, somewhat in the style of a lych-gate, like a bridge between the spiritual and the secular, between the Church and the World".

Above the south door of the church are two reliefs, 'Suffer Little Children To Come Unto Me' on the inside and 'Ask And It Shall Be Given' on the outside.
