St George, Patmore Street, Battersea
A small church that replaced both two 19th-century buildings destroyed in WW2 and a 1956 church by Covell Matthews and Partners, of which the tower and spire remain. The current church dates from 1996 and was designed by Levitt Bernstein Associates.
St Luke, Ramsden Road, Battersea
As close to Balham as much as Battersea. It stands out from some way off, above the sea of suburban villas between the two. It was designed by F.W. Hunt and built 1883-89 with the chancel and tower added in 1892 and the baptistery in 1899. The interior is a fine collection of contemporary fittings, including very early electric light fittings of 1903. The Lady chapel was refitted by Martin Travers in 1924-27, he also designed the font cover.. Most of the glass is by Powells.

All Saints, Prince of Wales Drive, Battersea
Opposite Battersea Park, it is by David Gill in 1976-78, replacing a church of 1882-1883 on an adjacent site. Some glass, the cockerel from the top of the tower, memorials and a font cover remain from the old church. The sanctuary area can be divided from the rest of the church to form a hall that is used as a nursery during the week.

At the western end of the road. The church is by T.F. Ford and dates from 1957 replacing a war-damaged 19th-century church. Some fittings by Martin Travers were brought from the sold church of St Stephen nearby. Like several other Ford churches, it contains murals by Hans Feibusch.

St Peter, Plough Road, Battersea
A 19th-century church was replaced, following a fire in 1970, by a new building in 1974. This, in turn, was demolished in 2014 and a new building was opened in November 2018 as part of a housing development. Some use is also still made of a nearby community centre which served as the church during construction. The pictures of the building under construction and the temporary premises were taken in January 2017
