St. John's Wood Synagogue was the formed in 1876. It was the first community to be formed under the newly formed United Synagogue. The first synagogue, located at the crossroads of Abbey Road and Marlborough Place, was a temporary structure housing about 250 members. The community grew very quickly and only six years later a cornerstone was laid for a larger permanent building. That building at Abbey Road opened in July of 1883. Again in 1920, the building was added on to as the community continued to grow. The current building was opened in 1964 at Grove End Road.
