Administrative/Biographical history:

The church of Saint Luke, Mayfield Road, Hornsey, originated in an iron mission church established by the London Diocesan Home Mission in 1898. A permanent church was constructed between 1903 and 1908, designed by J. E. K. and J. P. Cutts. A vicarage was added in 1910. The parish was taken from those of Christ Church, Holy Trinity and Holy Innocents in 1903: it covered only 123 acres but was densely populated. The patron is the Bishop of London.
