Hidden away in modern low-rise housing. It was designed by Gerard Goalen in 1973 and replaced two 19th-century churches demolished in the early 1970s. The side chapel has stained glass from the former St Augustine, Haggerston. The outside is almost windowless at street level and rather forbidding, but inside there is natural light from above. The floor slopes slightly from the rear down to the chancel. There are some unusual Stations of the Cross, which are awkward to picture well, owing to their reflective picture frames
