About Us

St Gabriel's Church is a Eucharistically based church in the modern Catholic tradition of the Church of England.

We are only 3 miles from the 2012 Olympic Site in Stratford and on the edge of the Ancient Wanstead Park part of Epping Forest -and the open playing fields of wanstead flats -Why not visit us if in the area. 

We Celebrated our 100th Anniversary of the building of our present Church building in 2014  although St Gabriel's folk worshipped in the "tin church" from 1904!

Our open church policy allows visitors to attend between 10 and 12 each weekday morning, giving opportunity for quiet prayer and reflection, or a friendly chat and coffee with our church sitters.
