The Friends Meeting House (circa 1990) on Quaker Close, Woodlands Drive. TA 02118 88432. Richard Roberts (2019). Link.

The former Friends Meeting House on St. Sepulchre Street. A plaque gives the dates 1801-1894. TA 0464 8885. Martin Richter (2014). 

St. Andrew (U.R.C.) on Ramshill Road. Built as Congregational in 1864-8. TA 041 878. Martin Richter (2014). Link. It shows as the nearer of the two marked churches in this aerial view, the other being St. Martin. Grade II* listed.

St. Columba, Elaine Hindson. Grade II* listed.

St. Edward the Confessor (R.C., 1912-14) on Avenue Victoria. TA 0431 8736. Martin Richter (2014). Link1. Link2. Link3 (a useful history). 

The former St. John the Evangelist on Sepulchre Street and Globe Street. It was built as a Mission Church, opening in 1884, and it was closed in 1940. After a long gap, it was re-opened by the Presbyterians in 1959, but was again closed following the union, and the congregation moved to St. Andrew's (see above) - history distilled from this news article. It appears to have no recorded use since then, but as of 2014 it is for sale for conversion to flats (sale notice). This has been proposed (and objected to) before (see 2010 news item). Another view. TA 0457 8878. Both Martin Richter (2014).
