Administrative/Biographical history:

Early in 1910 decline in local membership obliged the congregation of Craven Hill Church, Lancaster Gate, to decide to dispose of the church and school buildings and to erect a new church elsewhere. A meeting was held in the Craven Hill Vestry in March 1911, but in September of the same year was held in the temporary church in Wrentham Avenue, Brondesbury. At the latter meeting the request of 22 members of the Kensal Rise Congregational Church to unite in fellowship was accepted. The church closed in 1971.
