Westbourne Park Baptist Church

“A Baptist church was established on this site in 1875 but was damaged beyond repair during the Second World War. The replacement church, erected in the 1960’s, had become outdated, was poorly configured and expensive to maintain and was considered to have a negative impact on the Westbourne Conservation Area. This community-led project provides a new building with a mix of functions: new accommodation for the church, the family centre, and Paddington Children’s Library; a community hall and thirty-two apartments of intermediate affordable housing.”  Allies and Morrison
