All Saints, Kitsbury, Berkhamsted

In the east of the town, stands this large red brick church of 1905 designed by C.H. and N.A. Rew. A picture in the church shows the ambitious plans for twin west towers that was never executed. In 1975-80 the church became shared with the Methodists, a formal Anglican/Methodist partnership being established in 1993 . In 1975 its orientation was reversed when the two western bays were converted to a hall and a new western wall built to designs by Percy Mark. The old chancel in the apse became a lady chapel in 2005. The font comes from St Peter’s and dates from 1662.

St Michael and All Angels, Sunnyside, Berkhamsted

A north eastern suburb of Berkhamsted. The church was built in a rather conservative style in 1908-09 by Philip Mainwaring Johnston replacing a mission church of the 1880s. In recent years new rooms have been added to the north and the interior has been reordered in modern evangelical style with the focus on the north wall with the chancel becoming a chapel.
