The church building and hall are a significant resource for London Fields. The hall is a prime venue for hire by community groups wishing to be based or to operate in London E8. Both have disabled access and WC facilities for wheelchair users.
We are 20 minutes’ walk from Dalston Junction or Haggerston Overground stations and 10 minutes’ walk from London Fields station. Bus 394 (Angel-Homerton) stops outside the church.
Our links with the wider community include the church school – St Paul’s with St Michael’s – as well as the many groups that meet in the church hall. Apart from the groups mentioned below, the hall is also regularly used for meetings of local Tenants and Residents Associations.
