Frimley – Our Lady Queen of Heaven

Portsmouth Road, Frimley, Camberley, Surrey GU16 7AA

A 1960s brick church with a blocky tower, not of any special architectural interest, but with some furnishings of note.

In 1954 a small barn was converted to a chapel and dedicated to Our Lady Queen of Heaven, but it was not until 1967 that Frimley was established as a parish. The present church was built two years later. It was designed by a local architect, Robert J. Cole of Camberley. In 1978 the presbytery was built adjacent to the church and, the same year, work started on the new church hall linked to the south side of the church.


The church is built of variegated red brick and has a tiled roof. Entrance is via the porch at the base of the north west tower. This leads into a glazed narthex and beyond that lies the main body of the church, a rectangular structure with aisles to either side. The altar is said to have come from Farnborough Abbey. The Stations of the Cross were made by Giuseppe Rampini of Florence, and the two stained glass windows at the east end of the church may also be his work (the wording of the booklet is ambiguous).
