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.

Summer Fair - 12-4pm, 19 August

The local event of the season is coming up with all your favourite fun and games: great food (home-baked cakes and cream teas); vintage bric-a-brac; outdoor wares; and domestic luxuries such as candles and fragrances. The Victory Sisters will provide vintage musical entertainment with wartime songs, supported by jazz and classic pianists from our own congregation.


The wartime theme will continue with the launch at 2pm of three books about those from Mile End who lost their lives in WWI and whose names feature on the war memorials in the church. For more information, see our poster.


Entry is free. We look forward to welcoming you.
