Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

Watling Congregational Church was opened in Eversfield Gardens, on the edge of the Watling estate, in 1938. It was dependent on Union Congregational Church in Mill Hill, until in 1942 it acquired its own minister. The church was a plain brick hall, used also for social activities in 1970. In 1972 it joined the United Reformed Church on the merger of the Congregational and Presbyterian Churches. In 2001 it merged with Union Congregational Church, Mill Hill and St James United Reform Church, Edgware to form Trinity United Reform Church. All three churches worshipped as one from Eversfield Gardens from May 2005.
