Our Churches

St. Andrew's Church

St. Andrew's Church is currently close for publc worship on health & Safety grounds.  It would cost around £2 million to renovate current under-maintenance, not including much needed modern essentials as proper disabled access and toilets.  Its hall (Hammerton Hall) would cost a further £2.5 million on the same basis.  The hall is locally 'listed' by the London Borough of Lambeth as “of interest architecturally”; while the church is not. The church cannot raise the amount needed for restoration and repairs to limit further deterioration.  Discussions are underway with Lambeth as to the future of worship on the site.

St Michael's Church

St Michael's Church is listed as a Grade 2 building in the national register of buildings of architectural or historic interest.  It requires work to restore but has no severe maintenance backlog excluding rewiring, which we endeavour to undertake shortly.  However, to make it fit for purpose in the longer term would be very costly, the amount depending on the proposed changes made.  St Michael's Hall dates from the 1950s, has been well-maintained, but lacks certain facilities, for example a shower.
