Administrative/Biographical history:

The site of the church, on the north side of Elderfield Road, was bought by Charles Jacomb in 1868. A temporary iron church was built at first, capable of seating 500. Half the costs of a permanent church were borne by Jacomb himself. A district was formed from part of the parish of Saint John in 1873, the patron being the rector of Saint John. A mission in an iron church waas operating by 1881. This was later called The Good Shepherd Mission, which was closed in 1919. The parish was united with Saint John, Saint James and All Souls in 1972. The building was demolished in 1973 and replaced by flats.
