St John the Evangelist, Park Road, Bromley

North east of the town centre, a small church, rather overshadowed by the nearby Trinity United Reformed Church. Once inside the church seems much larger. It dates from 1879-80 and is by George Truefitt.

St George (former), Tufnell Park (now House on the Rock)

A remarkable plan of an octagonal nave within a circular building with a detached tower. It was designed by George Truefitt and built in 1865-68 for a breakaway Anglican group called the Free Church of England. In 1973-76 it was converted to a theatre. In 2010 a new building, Rock Tower, designed by Paul Davis and Partners was added between the church and the tower. The existing building was also renovated.
