Voted ‘best Modern Church built in the UK’ in 2013, St Paul’s Church, Bow Common is internationally recognized as a building of historical and cultural significance. With generous funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund, St Paul’s Church has not only been able to secure the building structurally with desperately needed building works, but has been successful in deepening hundreds of people’s engagement with the heritage of this special building.

This was accomplished through a series of Heritage Engagement events throughout 2015 and early 2016.
