Background and History:

Kingsbury Baptist Church was formed in the 1930’s at a time when the area of Kingsbury was beginning to be developed.  The nearest Baptist Church at that time was West Hendon, and as the population of Kingsbury increased, several people living in Kingsbury and worshipping at West Hendon began discussing the need for a church in Kingsbury.  

 

A temporary hut was erected, making it possible to hold regular services, Sunday school and midweek meetings,  until the permanent structure was built. On Wednesday 13 May 1931 a special service was held for  the foundation members of the church to dedicate themsevles to wortk together for Christ and his kingdom in Kingsbury.  The foundation stones of the permanent church and present building were laid on 16 May 1931 (a very wet day and probably apt for Baptists) and the church building was completed and opened on 10 Octoer 1931.   

 

William Clark, the first minister, was, called in 1932 and served the church for seven years and the church has continued to be served by a succession of ministers, each bringing his or her own gifts and abilities.

 

Our current minister, Rev Jo Phillips, commenced her ministry as pastor of Kingsbury Free Church,  in July 2016.
