Christ Church, Barnet
William Pennefather (1816-1873), the leading evangelist and author of several well-known hymns, was vicar here from 1852 to 1864, just after the village had been linked to central London by train. During those years the vicarage at Christ Church was a recognised centre of the evangelical movement.
The church's cemetery is on the opposite (western) side of St Albans Road, a short distance to the north, and contains a number of war graves. A memorial to former pupils of Barnet Boys School who died in the Second Boer War stands near the church. There is also a wall monument to deaths in the First World War, inside the church.
