St Antony, Wentworth Way, Hamsey Green

Right on the border with Surrey at the southern tip of Croydon borough, this is a hall church by A.W. Kenyon build 1957. The chancel can be screened off from the hall area when the hall is in secular use.

St Mildred, Parkview Road, Addiscombe

A little nearer the centre of Addiscombe than the Roman Catholic church and Parkview Church this is a large church of 1931-1934 designed by Cecil Hare and his last church. A whole complex of buildings was constructed around its westwards and northwards to give extensive community facilities in 2007. Included in this is a small open courtyard chapel between the church and the extension. The interior of the church was redecorated in late 2018 giving it a very fresh look inside.
