Administrative/Biographical history:

The parish of Jesus Church was formed in 1835 and became a perpetual curacy in 1845 with the district formed out of the parish of St Andrew. Patronage has always been vested in the vicar of Enfield. The church was built at the expense of Christian Paul Meyer who endowed it with money and land; further land was later given by Trinity College Cambridge. The church building was extended in 1889 and 1926.
