Turnham Green or Gunnersbury Congregational church originated in meetings held in a lecture hall from 1873. The Hall burnt down in 1875, and a plot was bought on the south side of Chiswick High Road, registered in 1882. Attendance in 1903 was 157 in the morning and 161 in the evening. The church, of stock brick with stone dressings in the Early English style, seated c 450 and included classrooms on lower floor. From 1963 the church leased as a store and was demolished in the 1980s. Services were held in a hall from 1963 to 1974. The congregation then joined Brentford Congregational church and the local Presbyterian church as Chiswick United Reformed church.
