On the edge of Wendell Park at the western end of Shepherds Bush. The nave dates from 1888-89 by C.N. Tudor with the chancel added in 1894. A 1970 reordering by Norman Haines has meant that the western half of the nave is divided off as a nursery school and community centre, the sanctuary at the west end of the rump nave and the office in the sanctuary area which has gained an organ gallery.
At the north end of Putney Bridge facing across to Putney Parish Church, this is the old parish church of Fulham on the edge of Bishop’s Park. The tower dates from 1440 but the rest was rebuilt in 1880-81 by Arthur Blomfield. Inside there is a large collection of monuments from before the rebuilding and much, mainly Heaton, Butler and Bayne, glass. Some medieval pieces remain together with an older Wailes window and a later one by Margaret H.E. Rope.
Facing the east side of the Green this is a church of 1884-86 Ewan Christian. It contains the font and pulpit from the lost city church of St Dionis Backchurch. The Font cover, screen, rood, former reredos and several painted memorials are by Martin Travers. The parish hall over the road is a former mission church of 1876 by A. Billing.
