Administrative/Biographical history:

In the 1840s the Hampstead parish church, Saint Paul's, began to hold services in the West End National School. In 1875 these services became part of Trinity Parish Mission Church, later called Emmanuel Church. A district was assigned to the church in 1885. Increased attendance led to the construction of a permanent church in 1897, designed by J.A.Thomas.
