The church was built on the site of a chapel of ease built in the 17th century by a former Lord Mayor of London. Christ Church is a Grade II* building built in 1862 to a design by Sir George Gilbert Scott, houses a treasure of pre Raphalite art, including works by Burne-Jones, Rossetti and William Morris.

The church is where many local people worship and where the most significant events of their lives take place. Christ Church has a distinguished choir, is also the home to numerous concerts and occasional public meetings. The church also provides a hall which is used for many local activities including two playgroups, an after school club used by the local primary school opposite, and many local social clubs.

East Barnet, Hertfordshire

St Mary’s is the oldest building in the London Borough of Barnet, and its clearly visible Norman heritage details means that despite some further development it is described by Pevsner as a ‘remarkable survival’ of that monastic period.
