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 Edmund of Canterbury, Nelson Road, Whitton (Roman Catholic)

West of the town centre, a church of 1961-63 by F.X. Verlade.
