Admission is free but donations gratefully received in aid of church and recital running costs. For recitals contact Nigel Grieve on nigel.d.grieve2016@gmail.com

We would like to encourage workers in the area to change up your lunchtime routine of eating at your desk, but instead you are welcome to quietly consume sandwiches, tea, coffee, etc. for lunch during our recitals.  ** NB In event of extreme weather conditions in winter check web site before travelling.

Our Wren church provides a beautiful acoustic for those seeking a venue in the City of London for concerts and rehearsals. The nave of the church sits 160 comfortably.

Enquiries are always welcome so please contact the church office.

The recitals coordinator, Nigel Grieve, organises our regular recital series – contact him on nigel.d.grieve2016@gmail.com

The church possesses a fine Bechstein Grand piano and situated on the west side of the church is a Theodore Bates organ (1848).
