Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

Forest Gate Congregational Church had its origins in a Gospel Service conducted by Jabez Legg in a cottage at Forest Gate. These services began in 1825 and by 1832 has expanded enough that a chapel was constructed, called Forest Gate Chapel. By the 1850s the local area developed from a small semi-rural community into a suburban neighbourhood, and it was decided to construct a new church in the middle of this development, which was completed in 1856. It was also at this date that the chapel joined the Congregationalist Church. Between 1884 and 1888 extensive rebuilding works took place, with further rebuilding in the 1920's.
