The Annunciation and St Augustine, Beckenham Hill Road, Beckenham Hill (Roman Catholic)
St Barnabas, Oakhill Road/Crescent Road, Beckenham
St George, High St, Beckenham
At the northern end of the town centre. The church is by William Gibbs Bartleet and dates from 1885-87, the tower being finished in 1902-03. It replaced the medieval parish church. Much of the stained glass was designed by Thomas Freeth (14 windows of which I have chosen 9 as examples) and installed between 1963 and 1985. WW2 bombing meant that the majority of the 19th century glass had been destroyed. The remaining 19th century glass is by Heaton Butler and Bayne with the rose window by Hardman, the south chapel has early 1950s glazing by Geoffrey Webb.

A short walk from Penge East station. The church was designed by E.F. Clarke and built in 1878, with the spire added in 1883. Following refurbishment in 1980 there was an arson attack in 1993 which led to a rebuilding and reopening in 1997. The sanctuary is now unroofed and used as a prayer garden, the body of the church was divided in two with the western end becoming hall space, the whole with new roofs. The aisle space towards the west is now offices and ancillary rooms. The fire exposed small areas of the original Victorian painted decoration.
