the most famous and significant parish church

‘St Paul's Church, Bow Common.. is the most famous and significant parish church to be built in Britain in the latter half of the twentieth century.  Unusually for a modern building, it is Grade II* listed

It crystallised architectural and theological thinking about the form that the church should assume in the post-war era. This important church marks a critical moment in British architecture, poised between progressive attitudes to both design and theology.’        Gerald Adler, 2012
