St George, Harrow Road, Sudbury (Roman Catholic)

A few yards further out of London than the Anglican church, this is a church of 1926 by Leonard Williams and completed by J. Eustace Salisbury. The presbytery combines with the church and its well-kept churchyard to give a rather rural aspect to the complex.

   
   
     
   
   
   
   
   
   
   

St Andrew, Harrow Road, Sudbury

A late gothic building of 1925-26 by W. Charles Waymouth. The windows contain much coloured art nouveau influenced glass reminiscent of many nonconformist chapels of the Edwardian age. The hall at the rear was built as a Mission church in 1904-05 by Arnold Mitchell.

           
   
 
   
   
   
         
   
   
   
   
   
          
   
   
   
   
   
 

Ascension, The Avenue, Preston Road

One of the last churches of J. Harold Gibbons being built in 1957. The interior features a Hans Feibusch painting behind the altar. The wooden “serving hatch” doors at the west end can be opened to allow the narthex to be used if there is a high attendance at a service. The hall to one side served as the church from 1937.
