Church of England Diocese of Southwark Saint Swithun, Purley

About Us

Our Church is situated at the corner of Downlands Road and Grovelands Road in a quiet residential area of Purley in the London Borough of Croydon.

Through active participation of the congregation we are a lively and welcoming church, which celebrated its 60th Anniversary in 2014. Our main services are held at 11am on Sundays.

Revd Fiona Weaver was appointed in  2013 to be Priest in Charge of St Swithun's and of St Mark's, Woodcote. In 2018 she was made Vicar of the United Benefice of St Swithun's and St Mark.
