Heath St Baptish Church was founded in 1861. It stands halfway between Hampstead High Street and the famous Heath and only a few minutes walk from Hampstead Heath tube station.
Their openness owes much to their forebears – the Baptists of Hampstead – who, in the nineteenth century, worshipped in an upstairs room of a house on Holly Bush Hill and there in 1825 the church decided to open its Communion Service to all believers.
They owe their building not least to the generosity of James Harvey – a London merchant and deacon of Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church – who, recently widowed, moved out of the city to Hampstead for the sake of his young son’s failing health. As a ‘Thank You’ to God for his son’s subsequent recovery, he bought what was then a plot of land used as a fruit and vegetable garden and set about the building of what was to become Heath Street Baptist Church.
