Parish History

Temple Fortune is a place in the London Borough of Barnet to the north of Golders Green. Religious buildings include the Catholic Church of St Edward the Confessor, the Anglican Church of St Barnabas, and North Western Reform Synagogue (also known as Alyth Shul).[1]

Additional information:

Temple Fortune was served from the 1890s by a mission under the control of St. Mary's, Hendon, which conducted services at no. 24 Hendon Park Row. (fn. 83) In 1915 its functions were taken over by a London Diocesan Home Mission dedicated to the Holy Name, which held services in a temporary building in Cranbourne Gardens, serving also as a church hall. The mission district became the consolidated chapelry of ST. BARNABAS, Temple Fortune, in 1923, taken from the parishes of St. Mary, Hendon, and St. Mary, Finchley.[2]
