St Michael's Mission to Westfields

Rhodri Walters



This paper gives an account of the early years of the worshipping community that became St Michael and All Angels Church in Barnes. It describes the foundation of the original school church in Archway Street, the acquisition of the mission “iron church” and the eventual construction of the building we know today. It also demonstrates the church’s development in the context of the social history of the area and shows how different aspects of church life in those early years reflected some of the key features of the Oxford Movement which did so much to revitalize nineteenth century Anglicanism.
