A church in Harringay has been shortlisted in a competition to find the UK’s best modern church.

St Paul the Apostle, in Wightman Road, is in the running to win the Best Modern Church architecture competition.

It is one of 24 churches which have been shortlisted in the contest run by the National Churches Trust, The Ecclesiastical Architects and Surveyors Association and the 20th Century Society.

From the shortlist, judges will pick the top ten and award a ‘National Churches Trust Diamond Jubilee Architecture’ prize to the top three.

The ceremony to honour the top places of worship built in the last 60 years will be held at Lambeth Palace on November 7, 2013.

The awards will be presented by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby.
