Is that what you were after?
Yes, thanks again jdbri -----
It's the regular church of former Prime Minister Tony Blair and wife and family. Of course everyone is welcome to go there.
There is a small charming church by the river near battersea. http://home.clara.net/pkennington/index.htm
It's right next to the river and there is a shingle slipway down to the Thames where a couple of Swans hang out. There are a few houseboats moored nearbye and it's a very pretty little spot overall. No idea what flavour of faith it is but if i was going to worship I think I'd go here.
And the hero/villain Benedict Arnold is buried there.
If it's a Catholic church you want, I would (well, actually do) choose St Etheldreda's over Brompton Oratory any day. It's arguably the oldest Catholic church in the English-speaking world, and pretty well the only medieval English church where Catholic services are regularly held (the other 8,000 surviving medieval churches in England underwent a change of ownership in the 16th century).
Some might regard the London Oratory as "beautiful": frankly it's just another overwrought Baroque church, of which Europe has tens of thousands (most a great deal nicer). At the main Sunday Mass, you get a wider range of settings at the Oratory (mostly Mozart and the like) - but there are dozens of decent Anglican churches in London singing the same Masses just as well. At St Etheldreda's it's all either real Plainsong, or setting from earlier composers, like Palestrina. The main Mass at both is in Latin (surprisingly common in London's Catholic churches)
At St Etheldreda's Mass was first celebrated 800 years ago - and it's still celebrated in the language and with the music congregations would have heard 800 years ago.
London is astonishingly short of old churches - at least as we understand "old" - since most were destroyed in 1666. The chapel of St Peter ad Vincula in the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, St Ethedreda's, St Bartholomew's in Smithfield, St Ethelburga's (Bishopsgate), All Hallows (by the Tower) and Temple Church are almost the only churches in the centre predating 1500.
