Staines is in the borough of Spelthorne, a local government district of the county of Surrey, formed in 1974.
Prior to then, Staines had been an urban district from 1894, originally the county of Middlesex, but transferred to Surrey in 1965 (although its postal address remained in Middlesex). It lies immediately to the southwest of the administrative boundary of Greater London.


The Congregation was formally established in about 1946, having developed from the Membership Group, which had been formed by evacuees from heavily populated areas of Central & Eastern London, during WWII.
