The church is set well back from the main thoroughfare of Rowan Road in the cul-de-sac of Church Walk, which turns off the main road just along from the South London Cemetery and Crematorium.
Sunday Mass at 10.00 a.m. is according to Common Worship, and incense is used. To honour Our Lady, the Angelus is said at the end of Mass.
The music is congregational, with some choral items on important days of the church calendar. The New English Hymnal is used for most of the hymns.
Large print hymnbooks and service books are available.
The church has easy access for wheelchairs.
Members of the congregation meet in the Hall after Mass for refreshments and conversation.
