I stumbled across this humble little church a few years ago now and was intrigued initially by its unusual 1950s design. The Roman Catholic Church is in Harold Hill, an estate build to house working class people bombed out of East London during the war. It's nestled opposite a row of small shops and a pub called The Cockney Gent.
Whilst taking a photograph of the church from the pavement one day, I was approached by Rev Tan who asked if i'd photograph the children during their first communion. I olbliged and have been photographing the service every year. The church serves a diverse local parish and has served me with some colourful characters to shoot for this growing collection.
