Celestial Church of Christ
Greater London
SE15 6RN

A grant to help fund a large project to fix dangerous stonework and replace parts of the roof. Formerly a Church of England building, the church was built in 1864-65 by Enoch Bassett Keeling. He was master of the short-lived vogue of “Eclectic Gothic”. His work was often unloved and relatively few of his buildings have survived. Elephant and Castle Parish in London was established in the year 1975 and is the second Celestial Church of Christ church to be established in UK and Ireland. It is the largest Celestial Church of Christ parish with a congregation of about 500 registered members.
