We are a friendly local church, set close to Victoria Park in the heart of Bethnal Green.

About fifty people meet each Sunday to celebrate the fact that we are part of God's ongoing story in Bethnal Green.

Morning Prayer is offered on Mondays and Thursdays (except August), and there is an evening service on Sundays.
