GREEK ORTHODOX CHURCHES. (fn. 20)

Services were held in the Anglican church of St. Mark, Noel Park, from the beginning of 1965 until the former Catholic Apostolic church in Finsbury Avenue was leased later that year. The church, after repairs and internal alterations, still served the Greek Orthodox community of St. Barnabas, Wood Green, in 1972.

Rising numbers led to the purchase of the Methodists' Trinity chapel, Trinity Road, in 1970 and to its elevation to the status of a cathedral under an assistant bishop, of Tropaeou. By 1972, when there were estimated to be 25,000 to 30,000 Greek Orthodox Christians in north London, the Wood Green community had evening and Sunday schools, as well as women's and youth organizations.
