The old church was some 60m from the site of the new church.
Very roughly between the building on Google Map labelled St Luke's church Peckham (it's actually the church hall) and Chandler way.
Chandler way is a new road and the part of Rosemary Road that the old church building was on no longer exists.
The W3W location below is an estimate.
