Grail Community Chapel (former), Waxwell Lane, Pinner now SPEC Retreat Chapel (Roman Catholic)

A small chapel added to the rear of a farmhouse north of the town centre. It was built for a Catholic Lay Community called The Grail Community in 1957. The Grail Community left in 2012 and SPEC (Spiritual & Personal Encounter with Christ) took over the site in 2014. A tapestry of the Last Supper behind the altar is no longer in place, but a metal and ceramic Stations of the Cross by Caryl Houselander remains at the entrance end.

St Luke, Love lane, Pinner (Roman Catholic)

Right in the town centre, a distinctive twin towered church of 1957 designed by F.X. Verlade.

St John the Baptist, Church Street, Pinner

A large example of a typical 13th and 14th century Middlesex village church. Restored by J.L. Pearson in 1879-80, the roofs are his. It sits at the top of a hill looking down over the town centre.
