Christ Church Southgate

Located in greater London, this church was designed in the English Tudor style by G.G. Scott and it was built 1861-62.



Three arched gables frame the mosaic reredos of Salviati's Last Supper, which is very similar to the one found in Westminster Abbey.


Update: More detailed photographs of the mosaic reredos have been added here.

  1. Thank you for featuring our church! Have you ever visited us? You are most welcome to do so. Sundays are our best day for visits (!) as we have three services and there will always be someone around to show you around.

    Kind regards

  2. I'm glad that you found this site! Thank you for the comment. I am in the US, but I'd love to personally visit more locations with Salviati mosaics, your church included. Maybe on my next trip to the UK.
