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.
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.
