The church was dedicated in February 2014, and is part of a Christian Community site that includes this parish church and a church school.
The Architect is Peter Mayhew at Allford Hall Monaghan Morris. The church building design is like Tadao Ando’s Church of the Light built in 1989 in Ibaraki, Osaka Japan. It has a striking sanctuary cross cutting right through the wall: proclaiming the cross clearly to the outside street and estates; letting the light of the rising sun in on the people of the risen Lord. It is an elegant modernist structure with light wood furnishings and good acoustics. The back wall is glass opening into the cloistered garden where seats and flowers and vegetables provide a place of sanctuary and peace in a busy world.
The building complements the adjoining school building of Ark All Saints Academy with whom we have a joint ministry. The buildings won a Civic Trust Award in 2015 and were in the RIBA short list for the national best buildings of the year.More details at http://www.achurchnearyou.com/camberwell-st-michael-a-a-all-souls-emmanue/
