Twentieth Century churches of South London
A circular tour round some of the twentieth century churches south of the Thames.
Some were traditional in shape and others more radical. The best was St John's Peckham in Meeting House Lane. A truly beautiful church and dramatic setting for services.
The picture shows SS Philip and Mark, Avondale Square on a City Corporation Housing Estate on the Old Kent Road. Built in 1963 there are beautiful ceiling paintings although when I called after the service the incense was choking.
This is St John's Peckham, a very beautiful 20th Century church
This is St Katherines Eugenia Road
This is St Lukes Camberwell
