About Us

St John at Hackney Church is the iconic Anglican parish church of Hackney, and has been a centre of Christian worship in the borough Since 1275. Our vision is to see a renaissance through restoring lives, revitalising churches, renewing culture, in Jesus’ name.

To facilitate our ambitious vision, in 2020 we completed a once in a lifetime restoration of St John at Hackney Church and its surrounding churchyard. This £6 million project has turned this iconic building into a world class music and events venue. The space is designed to be a cathedral of creativity for church, music and unique experiences. St John at Hackney is one of the largest venues in East London.

The design team included internationally renowned architectural designer John Pawson CBE, architect Thomas Ford & Partners, with an immersive installation from Es Devlin OBE.
