We are a located in the middle of the City of London Avondale Square Estate in South Bermondsey. Our active congregation is made up of people of all ages and backgrounds, sharing the love of Christ and serving the local community. We are proud of our reputation of being an open and friendly Church, and we work hard to include everyone so that all who come can play a full part. Our worship is of the Anglo-Catholic tradition of the Church of England, traditional but with modern forms of worship and songs. Some members were born in Avondale Square and have lived here all their lives; others have arrived only recently from countries all over the world. We are very different but united in our passion to worship God and follow in the way of Jesus Christ. We aspire to be a Church where all feel at home, united in faith, love and friendship.
