contributed by Matthias_Hanzlik

St. Paul's in Bow, East London, was built in 1878. The Victorian church was in a bad state and closed in 1991 due to safety reasons. In 1998 the church was rehabilitated. As 'New Heart for Bow' it comprises new facilities for worship and a community centre which serves the whole local community. The building within a building concept is internally conceived as a tulipwood-clad Ark on legs. There are two internal floors and a mezzanine level with full disabled access. The top floor houses a gym, the first floor a flexible community space currently used as a study support centre for schoolchildren, and the ground floor offers space for worship, a café, a flexible meeting hall and ancillary rooms. Windows in the Ark provide selected views internally as well as to the surroundings.

Mr James Crouch says:
I lved in nearby Libra Road and was christened at this church in 1940 and still have my treasured original certificate
Peter Strong says:
I was a choir boy at St Paul's Church 50 years ago and have seen it for the first time today since then.

I loved the building and was truly surprised to see what has become of it.

If I still lived in the area I'm sure I would grow to love it all over again.

My very best wishes to all who use the building.

God Bless and many thanks to all those people who worked so hard to save this wonderful building.
ACW says:
This is near Roman Road Market (at the Old Ford / St Stephen's Road end). There are several bus routes, including 8, 276, 339, 488.

I think they are closed on Saturdays, but definitely open Sunday - Friday.

Well worth a visit.
