Southeast of the town centre in leafy suburbia, this church replaced a 19th-century building on the edge of the town centre. The architect was David Bush and it was built as a complex of halls, offices and church in 1965-72. It was originally orientated towards the wall that now features two fire doors. Their insertion led to the altar being moved in front of John Hayward’s stained glass windows. Some choir pews and two angels, as well as some of the glass re-used in the windows, remain from the previous church.
