St Matthew’s Church is an enormous Victorian building in the centre of Brixton at the heart of a conservation area.  It is another of the ‘Waterloo’ churches.

During the 1970’s and 1980’s the interior was significantly but insensitively re-ordered to provide a range of community facilities.  The building was significantly refurbished in 1993-4 to provide new resources for the area.  Amongst all the other facilities, it continues to house the Anglican Church of St Matthew’s, continuing the tradition of Christian worship on the site .

The old church of East Brixton, St Jude was made redundant in 1980 and has been converted into a furniture warehouse.
