Looks like Church has been rebuilt? - I am no expert but the current Church looks a lot more modern and certainly does not have a "Tower Cross" - OS Data CROSS DEMOLISHED 0994 - Internet Data - Before 1994 this was the most distinguished modern church in Crawley. It was built in 1952-54 to the design of N F Cachemaille-Day and Partners (ICBS/60 Churches p96) and showed distinct continental influence, in architecture and liturgy. A flat-roofed glazed rotunda, perhaps unconsciously echoing E G Asplundís Stockholm Town Hall of 1921-28, surmounted a cube-shaped main part and the influence of the French architect Auguste Perret was also apparent. Inside, it was the only church in Crawley with a central altar. A hall to the north could be opened into the church, but a planned east extension was never built. The church was declared redundant in 1993. Its site was sold and the church demolished. A new one with the same dedication, but on a different site in Gales Drive, was opened in 1995. Rivet also listed for the same site - also Destroyed.
