History of Buildings
The Church Building was built in 1871 using Reigate Stone.
A more detailed history of the church is being written and will appear here soon.
Although a small vestible with a small room, water and toilets was built in the 1960s, the church buildings were very inadequate for a busy church community trying to use its buildings for lots of activities. In 2010 St Peter's Church Building in Doversgreen was sold and the money used to help build an Annex onto the West End of St Luke's Church. The money from St Peter's has been supplemented by grants from trusts and sacrificial giving from members of the congregation. The New annex was opened by the Bishop of Croydon on 13th December 2015.
