Facilities and features

Click on the tags below to learn more about each.

Accessibility

There is a single disabled access toilet at the rear of the church near the front door. Because we are a Grade II* listed building from 1821, it is with regret that we do not have more substantial cloakroom facilities.

This is within the disabled access toilet.

Parking is freely available directly opposite the Church entrance in Hallowfield Way. There are no parking restrictions for ordinary cars at any time. PLEASE park in this road rather than trying to squeeze in Church Path or Vicarage Gardens - where there is not enough resident parking already!

The disabled person's toilet at the back of church has a pull down arm and low level basin.

We try to be aware of different people's needs.

Drop-offs may be made in the pull-in immediately opposite the church tower off Church Road, but please do not park here, as more than one congregational member has mobility needs.
Parking is open and free directly opposite the church building in Hallowfield Way.
Please avoid parking in Church Path or Vicarage Gardens as resident parking is very tight.

Access from the pull-in is flat directly to the front door of the church and internally there are no steps throughout the building at nave level. There are steps up to the Nave Altar dais and High Altar Sanctuary; ramps can be provided.

An induction loop is available throughout the church building for those with a 'T' setting on their hearing aid.

Assistance Dogs are welcome with their owners!

We are a dementia-aware congregation and try to support people who have needs as a consequence of dementia or other conditions.


Our Building

We are a Grade II* listed building with mediaeval roots! Late Georgian - foundation stone of present church was laid in 1819 and the present church building was opened for worship in 1822.


Music and Worship

A new Mitcham Band was brought together in mid-2018, thanks to the encouragement of the Surrey Bellringers' Association, and now the Band is growing in confidence and is ringing quite regularly.
The practice night is Monday from 1900.
Pam Donovan is our Tower captain and trainer, and Jean Moody and Norma Vieira are Joint-Secretaries.

Concerts / Live Music

We have a good-sounding electronic Allen Organ. Recitals on this beast are very popular!

Our Choir is currently suspended due to the Covid-19 restrictions
Gill Campbell is our Organist.
Andrew King is our Choir Director.


Groups, Courses and Activities

We have an active Mothers' Union branch, the Reverend Jackie Cockfield being the Leader. Please be in touch if you would like additional information.


Help for Visitors

We have a simple laminated 'Features of the Church' interpretation sheet which will guide you around the church.


Other Features

We regularly support the Wimbledon Foodbank by taking collected donations to their headquarters in Merton.

The Church and graveyard sits within the Mitcham Cricket Green Conservation Area.

As much as is possible, we use Fairtrade products when we are allowed to serve refreshments

Back to Church Sunday

The Parish Centre - directly across the road - is used by a Day Care organisation during the week through to 3.00pm. The main Centre Hall and kitchen is available to hire after that time and at Weekends (however two independent Church congregations meet regularly on Sunday afternoons).
The Parish Administrator - Sara Taylor - arranges Centre bookings on 020 8648 1566 or [email protected]
