We are a local church, set between two of the busiest Sunday street markets in East London: Brick Lane and Columbia Road. The area is now a 'go to' part of a London visit, full of history, street art and fashion - both new and vintage.

With parking at a premium, it is best to walk or use public transport.

About fifty people gather on Sundays to celebrate God's love for them by remembering Christ in their midst in the form of bread and wine.

The style is liturgical but relaxed, with excellent music that supports congregational singing.

We are a diverse group, reflecting some of the many strands of life in inner London.

Prayer is offered each morning and evening.

The church is often open for private prayer.

Groups meet during the year to deepen our faith and we try to show God's love to others by working in various ways with our community.

We know we are not perfect but we are committed to trying to make our faith shine out in our lives.
