The Church Building


Our historic building dates from 1697, though it was largely demolished and rebuilt in 1834.  
It is Grade II* listed, a fine example of Georgian architecture in the conservation area of Blackheath, and is unusually listed not just in its own right but as part of a group of three fine buildings on Dartmouth Row.  Damaged by bombs in World War II, the interior was extensively remodelled in 1953.  We have a new reordering project underway which will redecorate and upgrade the interior, while being sensitive to the value of this historic building.

The Vicar is happy to show people around the building by prior arrangement (contact us), or drop in on a Sunday at 11:30am for the end of our worship (you'll get a free cup of tea then!)
