St Barnabas, Homerton High Street

By Arthur Ashpitel 1845-1847, with the north aisle added in 1851. After WW2 damage, in 1944, it was rebuilt by William C. Lock with the chancel converted to ancillary rooms and reopened in 1958. The large paintings by Alfred Soord came from St Andrew, Bethnal Green, as were other furnishings now replaced. The WW1 memorial is carved into a nave pillar rather than a wall memorial. A full-height creche has been inserted into the southwest corner, but there are now plans to re-order the west end with a mezzanine and community facilities.
