The Church

A mural by Frederick Leach at St Clement's Church


In 1872 the leading church artist, Frederick Leach, painted a mural on the east wall, showing Christ in heaven surrounded by the saints. It is widely regarded as Leach’s finest piece.

Today, St Clement’s is an Anglican church shared with St Ephraim’s Orthodox parish. In 2019 Aidan Hart, Britain’s leading icon artist created an iconostasis (screen of icons), which shows Jesus and Mary watching over our earthly lives.


The church houses a modest pipe organ and a baby grand piano. Both are used regularly for worship and in performances at St Clement’s.

The instruments are available to use for practice and during private hire of the church by arrangement. Please contact our Director of Music for more information.
