Index - Home Page - St George in the East Church Cannon Street Road, Anglican parish of St George-in-the-East church with St Paul Whitechapel
Welcome

to the website of the Anglican parish of St George-in-the-East with St Paul, proud to serve a diverse and rapidly-changing community in London's East End.

We are between the City and Docklands, along The Highway - click here for a local map.

The area includes extremes of wealth and deprivation, and has been home to many generations of immigrant groups (the majority now are Bengali, and also Somali), alongside lifelong East Enders, and City professionals. 



We are a parish of the Diocese of London in the Stepney Episcopal Area and the Deanery of Tower Hamlets, working with other Christians of many traditions and denominations. We are 'clustered' with St Mary Cable Street, St Paul Shadwell, St Peter London Docks and St Dunstan & All Saints Stepney, and the Royal Foundation of St Katharine.

Our parish school is St Paul's Whitechapel CE Primary School.



As you will discover from this site, the parish has a rich and fascinating history, with many stories to tell - there are lots of links to more detailed sources of information.

More important, we are a living church, with a mission for the 21st century. Right are the current parish boundaries.

Since October 2014 the parish has been without a Rector, though there is an able lay team (led by the churchwardens) and much support in leading worship from local clergy, some of whom are long-standing friends of the parish. A consultation process about the next appointment is under way, which it is hoped will be made mid-2015. If anyone needs or wishes to contact Michael Ainsworth, the previous Rector, is address, phone number and email details are here.
