The history of an English church, with photographs.
The Story of St Swithun's, Purley was produced in collaboration with the Bourne Society for the 50th anniversary of the opening of the present church building in 1954. It details the earlier mission churches in the area and the people associate with them, moving on two fundraising in the late 1930s for a new building, its start and halt to building in WW2 and then the final build in the early 1950s. Activities and worship at the church are covered in recent decades until 2004 when the work was published.
