North Benfleet – All Saints

We visited this church on a bright and sunny Sunday morning. It was down a little lane, past a few houses and through some farm grounds. There was a service going on but we didn’t go in.

The church was in disrepair for many years but since March 2013 it has been used by the Greek Orthodox church. There was some fencing around the south side of the church and a lot of dead climbing plant over the south side of the tower, probably ivy. It had been cut back at the bottom so presumably will be removed at some point.

Westcliff-on-Sea – Greek Orthodox Church of St Barbara, St Phanourios and St Paul

On its Facebook page this Greek Orthodox church calls itself Church of St Barbara, St Phanourios and Paul the Apostle. The noticeboard outside the church has slightly different wording, possibly missing a couple of apostrophes . . .

Here are a handful of photos from 29th December 2007, not very good quality I’m afraid.
