This is claimed to be the first new build Anglican church in London for 40 years, it came into use in October 2017 and was dedicated in November 2017. The congregation had begun meeting in 2013. It is on the Hale Village Estate on former industrial land between Tottenham Hale station and the River Lea, the masterplan and design for the whole development is by BDP.

Lee Valley Estates, the developers, provided an area on the ground floor of one of the housing blocks on a 500 year lease. This is called the Engine Room and as well as a worship area offers halls, rooms and a cafe. The triptych called “The Eternal Engine” and the Stations of the Cross paintings (15 rather than the traditional 14 as there is an extra called Resurrection) were created by Graeme Mortimer Evelyn. Towards the back of the church is an underfloor full immersion font.


St Michael, South Grove, Highgate

A church of 1831-32 by Lewis Vulliamy, it replaced a chapel of ease and was built on the site of the demolished Ashurst House. In 1878 a chancel was added by G.E. Street. The east window glass of 1954 by Evie Hone replaces a war-damaged Kempe window, whose remains are now in the north chapel east window. The reredos and the redecoration of the sanctuary are by Temple Moore in 1903. There are a few 18th-century monuments from the old chapel.
