St Marks Church Kennington

St Mark’s Church, Kennington, is an Anglican church in Kennington, London. The church is a Commissioners’ church originally receiving a grant from the Church Building Commission towards its construction cost.

The architect was David R. Roper and the total cost of the church, including the land and other expenses, was £22,720. This was paid partly by the local parishioners and partly by Parliament through a grant known as “The Million Fund”.

From 1879 to 1889, the Vicar of St Mark’s was The Rev. Henry Montgomery (1847-1932), a clergyman who had been born into an Ulster Scots family in Cawnpore. He later served as Bishop of Tasmania. His son, who was born in Kennington, was Field Marshal The 1st Viscount Montgomery of Alamein.

The church stands prominently opposite the Oval tube station and close to the world famous cricket ground.

The Georgian church is typical of the period with classical columns dressing an ornate entrance and the church stands in its own grounds commanding a large corner site. Inside the church has been segmented with a floor being fitted at the upper gallery level. The upstairs area now consists of many offices,meeting rooms and a large communal area.

The worship area remains at ground level, and below ground level is a crypt and cafe area.

The heating system therefore had to be flexible enough to meet the demands of all areas both individuality and collectively. It also needed to be responsive and economic. The initial design of this system was prepared by Martin Dow of EngDesign London and we worked closely with them in delivering a suitable solution to St Marks heating requirements.
