A church of 1998 that replaces St Catherine of 1893 (now an Elim Pentecostal church) and St. Paul’s Leyton of 1907 (but a slightly earlier mission church). It is a complex of rooms, offices, etc with a large worship space on the ground floor.
By Richard Creed, 1893 as an Anglican church but now an Elim Pentecostal church since 1977. The interior has been drastically reordered with a stage at the west end, seating and a reception area at the east, and offices and a gallery inserted over the former chancel area.
Hidden away in modern low-rise housing. It was designed by Gerard Goalen in 1973 and replaced two 19th-century churches demolished in the early 1970s. The side chapel has stained glass from the former St Augustine, Haggerston. The outside is almost windowless at street level and rather forbidding, but inside there is natural light from above. The floor slopes slightly from the rear down to the chancel. There are some unusual Stations of the Cross, which are awkward to picture well, owing to their reflective picture frames
Close to Whipps Cross hospital and right next to a southern extension of Epping Forest. A large church of 1887-92 by Sir Arthur Blomfield. Inside the nave’s western three bays have been divided off to create a hall area. Much of the stained glass is interesting arts and crafts work by Margaret Chilton, added over a long period during the first half of the 20th century.
