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.
