Historical Saint Peter’s Church

Historical Saint Peter’s Church

St PeterSurviving floods and the blitz, Saint Peter’s Church is now a historical East End landmark.

It was awarded Grade 1 listed building status in 2007 for historical as well as architectural interest making it one of only 13 Grade 1 listed buildings in Tower Hamlets.

St Peter’s dates back to 1856 at a time Wapping was cut off from the rest of London by the docks. The area was one of the poorest in London with a mix of poverty coupled with prostitution and criminality.

It was the first Anglican mission to the poor of London and continues to provide invaluable support to both the poor and local community in Wapping today.

Stop the Rot!

The future of St Peter’s is now uncertain unless urgent funds can be found to address critical rot and maintenance problems.  A fundraising group is currently being setup to raise cash to try and save the historical buildings.

To find out more about the history of St Peter’s visit the church website at www.stpeterslondondocks.org.uk/ or email contact@stpeterslondondocks.org.uk

    We’ve just found out about another concert this Saturday so hope you can make it!

  • Helen

    Could we please have another concert (donations) within the church sometime this year? I loved the last one but it was under-attended. Thanks to this site we could advertise it widely. I realise this depends on the goodwill of unpaid musicians but …
    Thanks in advance if you all look into this.

  • Robin M

    Is the campaign registered as a charity yet? There was some discussion about this towards the end of last year.
