Welcome to the website of Bow Church, the Church of England parish church of St Mary & Holy Trinity in Tower Hamlets, London.


For 700 years, the church has stood in the middle of its community as Bow has changed from a rural hamlet to part of modern London's East End.


Thoughout our history, we have witnessed to the love of God for our community, our city and the world. We look forward to welcoming you to our historic building and vibrant Christian community.
