Christ Apostolic Church (formerly Church of St John), Highgate Road, Kentish Town NW5 - Camden

Church built on the site of the Kentish Town Chapel of 1783 by James Wyatt, of which the nave walls and apse remain. The rest was rebuilt in 1843-45 by JH Hakewill. High level repairs to the west end, grant-aided by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and Historic England, were completed in 2011. Damage caused by a falling chimney in 2013 has been repaired. Some stained glass windows have been sent to a studio for repair. The church is seeking funding for this and other necessary internal and external repairs.
