Parish History

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.[1]
