Administrative/Biographical history:

In 1899, the detached part of the parish of Saint James, Clerkenwell which lay to the north east of Muswell Hill in the parish of Hornsey became a mission district. Services were held at the Norwegian House, a former restaurant in the grounds of Alexandra Park, which stood near to the junction of Alexandra Park Road and The Avenue. A year later, in 1901, an iron church dedicated to Saint Andrew was erected on land purchased by the Bishop of London's Fund. A new parish was created from the former mission district and part of the parish of Saint Michael, Wood Green. A permanent church, designed by JS Alder, was consecrated in 1903. A church hall, to the west, was opened in 1923 and was used for worship after the church was devastated by an incendiary bomb in 1944. Saint Andrew's was rededicated in 1957, having been remodelled by RS Morris to incorporate the shell of its predecessor. The parish was united with Saint Saviour, Alexandra Park Road, in 1993 to form the new parish of Alexandra Park. Saint Andrew is used as the parish church.
