St John the Evangelist, Stratheden Road, Blackheath

To the north of the actual heath and village, this church was built in 1852-53 by Arthur Ashpitel Inside the western end of the nave is divided off for rooms and offices.

St Michael, Pond Road, Blackheath Park

Designed to be part of the Blackheath Park estate to the south of the town centre. It is by George Smith and dates from 1828-1829 in a typical “commissioner’s” style, but with a very eccentric eastern spire.

Our Lady Help of Christians, Cresswell Park, Blackheath (Roman Catholic)

Down a short cul de sac just off the town centre, this is a church by A.E. Purdie built in 1890.

All Saints, Royal Parade, Blackheath

A landmark on Blackheath as it is surrounded on all sides by the heath with no separation at all. It was designed by Benjamin Ferrey and built 1857-1867. The porch and vestries were added in 1890 and 1899 by A.W. Blomfield. Many windows were blown out in WW2 leaving a light interior. The screen is a WW1 memorial.

The Ascension, Dartmouth Row, Blackheath

Built as a chapel of ease in 1697 with an apse added in 1750. The nave was rebuilt in 1838-39 and restored in 1950 by Robert Potter after war damage.
