Stratford, Greater London

Opening times

The main church is closed to visitors Monday to Friday at present because of building work. There is still meeting space and a small prayer space.


Greater London
E15 1NG

We love our building, and open it for visitors almost every day of the year. 

It's a stunning building, full of natural light, and an oasis of peace and quiet in a very busy town. If you are lucky, you may hear someone playing the excellent pipe organ.

Gerard Manley Hopkins, born locally, was baptised here. There is always a warm welcome.
