Saint Dunstan’s Templar Church – Stepney Green

Join Today


This Templar church is a hidden treasure of history in Tower Hamlets, East London.

The only Anglo-Saxon rood cross in London is kept inside, a stone panel depicting the crucifixion.

While we have your attention, we would like to remind you of our Emergency Ukraine Appeal

While BILLIONS of Dollars pours into western Ukraine, the beleaguered people in the east have been forgotten and abandoned to starve or freeze to death. WE WILL NOT ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN! In conjunction with our brethren on the ground in the area I am asking you to dig deep and send your immediate financial support (as best you can) to our EMERGENCY UKRAINE WAR APPEAL!

There are also stain-glass windows depicting an “Aryan” looking Christ by Hugh Easton and some great gargoyles and grotesques on this church of the Merchant Navy and all sailors of the British Empire.

From Saxon to Norman to the Knights Templars and the Kights Hospitallers – it’s had an interesting history for a small church.

Certainly one of the most interesting and culturally valuable buildings in the borough of Tower Hamlets and well worth a visit by locals and tourists alike. Just a pity that the area now is more like Islamabad than London!
