Welcome to St Katharine Cree

The church of St Katharine Cree dates back to the 13th century. The current building was constructed in 1633 and the imposing Jacobean architecture is unique in London.


Explore the drop-down lists in the menu bar to read about aspects of the church’s life, including services, the bells, its history and architecture. If you need any more information than you find here, please get in touch by email, or find more contact information here.


A lunchtime Holy Communion service takes place every Thursday at 1.05pm and is followed by sandwiches.


There are no services in the weeks after Christmas and Easter or during the month of August, when the church is closed.
