Parish History

The origin of Emmanuel Church lies in the rapid development of West Hampstead in the second half of the nineteenth century after the arrival of the railways. The original hamlet of West End was part of the ecclesiastical parish of St John’s, Hampstead ( St John’s Church stands in Church Row, in Hampstead Village) until 1872. In that year, it was assigned to the new parish of Holy Trinity, Hampstead. Holy Trinity Church stands in Finchley Road opposite the Underground station of the same name, although the original Victorian church was demolished and replaced by the present building in 1978.[1]

Emmanuel West End Hampstead district church was created by the year 1885 and lay within the boundaries of the civil parish of St John Hampstead.
