Bethnal Green Jews' Episcopal Chapel, located on Old Nichol Street, was the first additional Episcopal chapel to be built within the boundaries of St Matthew's Bethnal Green in the year 1814. An episcopal chapel was erected in 1814 by the Society for Promoting Christianity among the Jews, attached to which are two schools, wherein 50 boys and nearly 60 girls are maintained, clothed, and instructed; the schools are supported by voluntary contributions. The Episcopal Jews' chapel closed in 1895 and later became Holy Trinity.
