St Martin’s: serving God and the community for 150 years” 1865 - 2015

St Martin's is a warm and welcoming church with a lively worshipping community at the heart of the fascinating Gospel Oak Ward in Kentish Town. A dramatic grade I listed Church, St Martin’s is a stones throw away from Parliament Hill. The church was described by Pevsner as the 'craziest of London's Victorian churches', adorned as it was, with pinnacles, like some fairy tale castle, was built in 1865.
