The Church Buildings at Emmanuel

Emmanuel Church was opened as a Mission Room and Day School for Infants in Half Mile Lane (as the High Street was known in those days) in 1895. It was known locally as 'The Iron Church', since the building was of wood covered with corrugated iron sheeting. By 1903 enough money had been raised to start work on a permanent red brick church designed by Mr. Frank Elgood who was a member of Ruislip Parish Council and a well-known London architect.


The church opened in 1904 and was consecrated in 1908, although the vestry, apse and spire were added later. It is now a thriving evangelical church and was further enlarged in the 1980s and again in the 1990s.

Emmanuel is now richly endowed with its fabric and has facilities and meeting rooms that are used every day of the week.

The Buildings

We are extremely blessed with the facilities we have. the Hall and Africa Lounge are the main two areas. Small capacity areas are The Upper Room, The Arch Room and Betty's Room - Betty's Room being the most recent addition to the comlpex and funded from a recent legacy.


We currently have many activites, catering for all ages and interests, across the week. This leaves limited capacity for extra activities but please do contact us if there is a regular community activity you would like to start and for which you require premises. 

We do not have the ability to hire for parties as we have no out of hours premises cover.
