Design based on St Mary of Eton, Hackney Wick (Bodley & Garner, 1880). The church once contained a set of Stations of the Cross painted by Harry R. Mileham, a local artist. When the church was closed in 1993 these were removed to St Mary's, Kemptown, Brighton. The building was sold to the Coptic congregation and Pope Shenuda of Alexandria subsequently rededicated the church to St Mary and St Abraham.
