St Barnabas, Rushet Road, St Paul’s Cray

High up above the Cray in the middle of a large estate, over a mile from St Paulinus. The striking copper-roofed building is by E.F. Starling and dates from 1962-64. The adjacent hall was built as a hall church in 1953 and used as a church until the completion of the current building.

St Paulinus (Former), Main Road, St Paul’s Cray now Redeemed Christian Church of God

There are few medieval Pentecostal churches but this is one. It was the medieval parish church of St Paul’s Cray but was made redundant in 1977 and has been a centre for the elderly and offices before its current incarnation. Although heavily restored in 1856-61 it is at its heart a Saxon and Norman building.
