A large church of 1859 by E.W.Pugin, alongside the east end there are the buildings of an associated Friary from the 1880s. It was served by Capuchin Friars up to 2000 and after a number of years under diocesan control it is now served by a Vincentian community The west end is partly hidden by a derelict looking church hall of 1937. As of November 2018, there is considerable building work going on the exterior’s south side.
This building replaced St Jude which had been bombed out. The current church was built in 1965 and designed by David Bush. The large interior is very dark and lit by a window inside the tower structure and a large stretch of dal de verre glass. The Lady Chapel also features the same kind of glass. The Stations of the cross made of crosses with the appropriate number of nails are unusual. The tall brick street front has been adorned with a huge mural called Run by Giacomo Bufarini since 2017.
The third church on this site, a church of 1839 was bombed out and replaced in 1961-62. However that building proved problematic and it was replaced in 2010-2011 by the current building. It sits on an island site and consists of a worship area and side chapel both separated by glass screens from hall areas. The architects were IID.
Built in 1907 by George Lansdown. It was only in occasional use for worship, being mainly used as halls. The last services were held in 1982 and it was closed as an Anglican centre in 1991. Since then it has been used by the Icthus Fellowship until 2002, and the Hooper Hall below by the New Testament Church of God from 1995-2000. It was then sold in 2002 to Christ Miracle Gospel Ministries. It is currently up for sale or lease.
