The Copleston Church is as unique as the area it serves.
The church was built in the 1880s, at a time when south London was expanding rapidly, with a donation from Mr Peek – as in Peek Freans biscuits – who was concerned about the rapid construction of housing with nowhere to worship. Tucked away down a side street, the church drew a congregation from Champion Hill for the next century.
In 1978 the building was extensively remodelled and converted into a community centre with a central worship area shared by the Anglicans and the nearby Hanover United Reformed Church. The congregation is multi-cultural and children are especially welcome. The constitution is a mixture of Anglican and URC structures and our worship reflects this.
The day to day running of the Centre comes under the management committee which is a partnership of church members and community representatives.
