Of all the college missions, only this and the Trinity College mission still fulfil their religious and community functions in the London Borough of Southwark. The church is on the first floor above halls and offices, with housing to one side. The lower floor is by E.S. Prior from 1891-92, while the church dates from 1908 and was designed by Herbert Passmore. The chancel of the church is separated by gates from the nave which is now mainly in use as a hall, with one aisle partitioned off for smaller rooms.
Overlooking Mill Hill Broadway nt far from the station. The design is of 1911 by W.D. Caroe but was not executed until 1921-22 under Herbert Passmore’s supervision. It was extended eastwards in 1932 and 1938 and finally the west end and Lady Chapel were built in 1956 to a modified design of Alban Caroe.
North west of Romford town centre is the former parish church of St John. It was designed in a byzantine style by W.D. Caroe in 1927 but only the sanctuary was built, it was completed in 1932 by Herbert Passmore with a west wall by Laurence King in 1979. It was declared redundant in 2010 and was in the hands of The Redeemed Christian Church of God on my first visit in 2013. In January 2020 it is used by Triumphant Chapel/Christ Heritage Assembly based in Barking and the grounds are padlocked.
