The Cross and Star Church, Falmouth Road, Bermondsey SE1 - Southwark

This church was built as a Presbyterian chapel in 1888 with Queen Anne and Romanesque influences. It is now the London base for the church of the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star. It is constructed of red brick and gauged brickwork with stone dressings under a slated roof. The complete gallery survives internally, and the stained glass is good quality. The external fabric is in need of repair, including the boundaries, the brickwork, rainwater goods and the stained glass windows. The congregation is actively seeking funding to help develop its project.
