Administrative/Biographical history:

The parish of Christ Church was formed in 1867 from St Mary's Willesden; its patron and first rector being Dr Charles Williams. The Church, a limestone building in thirteenth century style, was designed by C.R.B. King and constructed between 1866-1909. It had a High Church reputation. The Church was damaged by bombs in 1940 and not reopened until 1948. During this period, services were held at Mapesbury Hall and St. Gabriel's, Cricklewood. In 1971, the parish was united with Saint Laurence, Brondesbury. In 1990 Christ Church was substantially remodelled; much of the building was converted to flats, with a reduced church remaining in operation.
