Administrative/Biographical history:

The church of Saint Luke was established by the Islington Church Extension Society in 1855. At first a wooden church was used, which was replaced by a stone church in 1860. A parish was assigned in 1861 although in 1869 it was reduced in size. Part of the church was destroyed by enemy action in 1941 although it was repaired by 1956. A new building was constructed in 1961.
