Administrative/Biographical history:

Consecrated in July 1871, Saint Peter's Church was closed in May 1941 because of war damage and services were held at Saint John the Baptist, Eltham High Street. After the war a temporary church was provided until a new church was built in 1960 as a daughter church to the Good Shepherd, Lee. This church has in turn been replaced by a new building.
