Parish History

The East End of London experienced a huge increase in its population after the Battle of Waterloo and the Commission for New Churches responded with a flurry of church building. The commissioners appointed the eminent architect Sir John Soane (1753-1837), designer of the Dulwich College Art Gallery, to draw up plans for St John on Bethnal Green, the third of his three London churches. The foundation stone was laid on 6 June, 1826.

St John's was consecrated by the Bishop of London on 16 October 1828"..."by grant from the Parliamentary Commissioners, at an expense of £17,638, and is a handsome edifice of stock brick with detailing in Bath stone and Portland stone, in the Grecian style, with a tower surmounted by a cupola. The church, especially the vestibule, staircases and crypt, are fine examples of Soane's restrained and elegant style. The living is a perpetual curacy, with a net income of £190, in the gift of the Bishop.

See St Matthew Bethnal Bethnal Green.
