Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

Saint Silas in Ivydale Road was built to meet the needs of the residents on the Waverley Estate. The congregation originally met in a shop in Ivydale Road. When this became too small for the growing congregation Waverley Park Mission hall was built in Inverton Road on 5 October 1895. The church of Saint Silas was consecrated on 17 October 1903. On 1 March 1990 Saint Silas was made a united benefice with Saint Anthony, Nunhead Lane (P73/ANT).
