This building has replaced St Barnabas, Woodside Park about a kilometre away. The congregation moved to this large converted office block in September 2018, with conversion having begun in November 2017. Inside there are several floors of facilities as well as a worship area off the foyer. Inside the war memorial screen, some brass memorials, the font and the east window glass are preserved from the Holden Road church. The screen now has a painted backdrop of poppies by Joy Girvin and the glass (Goddard & Gibbs) is displayed in a lightbox on a lower floor.
A church was built in 1962 to serve the high-rise Stonegrove estate. Since 2016 the estate and church have been demolished and replaced with a low rise development designed by Sprunt and built by Barratts. As part of this a joint church and community centre called One Stonegrove has been built that contains a hall used for services and a very small chapel (the interiors shown) behind it.
The ancient parish church, well north west of Hendon central station, behind the Middlesex university campus. The nave, chancel, south arcade and north aisle are 13th century, the north chapel is 16th century. In 1914-15 a new south nave with its own south aisle was added in place of the old south aisle. The architect was Temple Moore. The north chapel sanctuary was decorated by Bodley in 1897. The font is a notable Norman piece.
