Although the Penge Congregational Church has been in existence little more than a quarter of a century, it is one of the busiest Congregational churches in South London. It has been aptly called a ' seven-day-a-week ' church because there is always something on in the evening to suit the many and varied activities of its members.
The Rev. Ernest J. Barson has been the minister of the church since its inception.

This was the last work that Holst composed. Sketched out in the form of a duet for two pianos during the summer of 1933, he began scoring it for orchestra at the end of the following February. The music is characteristic of the composer's clever and fluent craftsmanship. The texture is light and the scoring judged to a nicety. (Transcribed by Lionel Tertis)
Arnold Bax is one of the few contemporary composers who is still working along the lines of the romantic symphony and turning out works of vital interest and importance. Five big symphonies stand to his credit, all of which show a melodic invention and mastery of construction and orchestral resources that bear comparison with the symphonies of the great masters of the nineteenth century. Certainly as a symphonist Bax has only one rival today and that is Sibelius to whom his Fifth Symphony is dedicated.
The Fifth Symphony was written in 1932 and was first performed in January, 1934. Consisting of three movements it is the clearest in design and the happiest in mood of the five.
