Telephone: 020 7606 0684
Usual opening times: Tuesday Service 1pm and Wednesday 11am-3pm
Description: First mentioned in the early 12th century. The present building is 18th and 19th century, with mediæval foundations. Most of the church was rebuilt by Nathaniel Wright in 1789-91. In 1829 the East wall was moved back to allow the widening of Aldersgate Street. The interior is well-preserved late 18th century, described by Pevsner as being of “extreme elegance”. The churchyard was put together with those of neighbouring churches (now disappeared) to form “Postman’s Park”. The church now houses an Evangelical congregation.
