Downham Methodist Church, Downham Way, Downham, Lewisham, c.1960


Downham Methodist Church was one of the original five places of worship built to serve the spiritual needs of the estate's new residents.

The Downham Estate was built by the London County Council in the 1920s to provide accommodation for the overcrowded residents of inner London, and in particular those of Bermondsey and Deptford.

Like many of the other welfare and social facilities, this church did not open until after the completion of the estate. It is now used as a community centre.
