Hampstead, London - Highgate Road Chapel a Baptist Chapel on Highgate Road (corner of Chetwynd Road). It's currently partially partially turned into apartments.It opened on the 1st of February 1877 and was built to serve the rapidly growing population around London. Kentish Town was expanding rapidly, in part because of the burgeoning railway industry. A local business man, James Coxeter, purchased the land for a chapel, formed a small committee and advertised for funds to build the chapel.The First World War brought significant disruption to life at the Chapel, and the size of the congregation began to shrink. In 2001 the church officers made a bold decision to sell part of the site, and so raise funds to rebuild the old Sunday School Hall as a new chapel. This new building opened in April 2008. In September the Church called a new minister, and now work has begun to rebuild the congregation and again take the good news of Jesus Christ to the area of Dartmouth Park, Kentish Town and Highgate.http://www.highgateroadchapel.co.uk/abouthrc.html
