The £12,500 compensation provided by the railway company and the £526 which purchased the building for Wanstead were used by the London congregation to build a new St Luke's in Oseney Crescent, Kentish Town.
The new St Luke's was built in 1867-9 to the designs of the 25-year-old Basil Champneys.
But Revd Harker, who now regularly visits the camp in solidarity with the protesters, said they were highlighting “vital” issues which demanded widespread attention.
He said: “There were two reasons why I started to get involved.
The construction in the 1860s of the Midland Railway's London terminus, St Pancras railway station, necessitated the demolition of a number of buildings on Euston Road, one of which was the recently erected St Luke's Church, designed by John Johnson and built in 1856-61 on the corner of Midland Road.
The church was taken down and re-erected in 1866-7, with alterations by Johnson, as a Congregational church in Wanstead.
It was his first church and one of his first buildings.
His father, William Weldon Champneys, who commissioned the church, was the vicar of the parish of St Pancras.
Slamming on the brakes, the man was convinced he had hit someone, before realising there was no body, no damage to the car, and he had felt no actual impact.
He also then realised his phone did not have the ringtone he had heard, and on checking, his mobile had no missed calls.
The protest, inspired by the 'Occupy Wall Street' movement in New York, is compromised of a mix of campaigners protesting against social injustice, economic inequality and corporate greed, but has attracted criticism for its location next to a major tourist attraction and place of worship.
