Administrative/Biographical history:

In 1904 a church extension scheme was put in place to serve the expanding suburbs of London. One of the first mission churches to be set up in this scheme was St Peter, north Harrow. A temporary church was first dedicateed in 1907, it stood on a site fronting Sumner Road and Colbeck Road. It was run as a mission church of St Mary's, Harrow by London Diocesan Home Missionaries until a permanent building was constructed in 1913 and a separate parish was created. The church was built by G. H Fellows Prynne and consisted of a chancel, nave, aisles, transepts, north-east chapel, baptisery and bell turret.

During the early 1980's church attendance declined and the parishes of Christ Church and St Peter's amalgamated to become The Parish of Christ Church, Roxeth and St Peter, Harrow.
