The church is dedicated to St Ethelburga 7th Century Abbess of Barking nunnery and sister to the Archbishop of London, Bishop Erkenwald. The foundations dates from the 1250s and the current church was built around 1411, with a turret added in the 18th Century. Bombed in the IRA bombing of 1993 it was nearly demolished by the Church of England however, after a public outcry the church was saved and rebuilt as a spiritual centre.
