Since 1966 I have lived in Brunswick Grove and I have very fond memories of this church. It stood at the end of my road. The hall was used for many events including the monthly meeting of Young Wives. At this meeting all our children were looked after by "Aunty Ethel", a kindly lady who lived just across the road from the church, and then we 'wives' were able to concentrate on the meeting. This could be anything from The Electricity Board with their new cookers on show, to perhaps a speaker on Birth Control! Also at the back of the church was the huge garden and this was always put to good use holding fetes and fun days etc. Happy Days!

I attended this Church regularly, if not entirely willingly, with my Dad, John Clarke, in 1950's while St. Paul's, High Road, N11 was out of use due to war damage.

I remember John and your family well, he was such a nice man. The church & hall were both damaged. Building was started on the hall first when that was finished we had services in the hall while the church was rebuilt. For many years our church was just the south isle, the organ was behind the door, Mrs Tanner played 'Jesu joy' every week. Oh! That's taken me back. Had services in the hall
