Administrative/Biographical history:

Christ Church in Crouch End is situated on the corner of Crouch End Hill and Crescent Road. Services were held in Broadway Hall from 1833 until the church was constructed in 1862, when a district was assigned. The tower and spire were added in 1873 while room for extra seats was added in 1906.

The church of Saint Andrew was opened on Shepherd's Hill, Crouch End, in 1890. Attendance was not as high as expected and the church remained a chapel of ease to Christ Church until it was closed in 1907.
