In 1999 St Peters Lutheran Congregation sold their church property and manse in Blackwood to build a new Church and School on the current site – 71 Cumming Street – in the new Blackwood Park/Craigburn Farm development.

The decision to relocate and build a school as well as a church was undertaken with the aim of connecting with the growing community in the area and giving families a local option for a Christian education for their children.
