Stepney Area

We are a church of faithful and prayerful people, for whom serving others is key. We relate generously across social, cultural, and ecclesiological differences. We have seen instances of considerable growth in some church congregations and have supported innovative new projects. We have the God-given gifts of people’s commitment, skills, and time. We have buildings which stand as witness to the love of God for all in our communities.

There are 26 primary and 3 secondary Church of England schools in Stepney. There are also 3 universities, 8 hospitals, and 2 prisons in the area, in each of these key places of life our church is present.
