St Michael & All Angels

There has been a community of people worshiping in London Fields for over 150 years, ever since the first church, in Lamb Lane to the East of London Fields, was consecrated in 1864.

About this church

The Victorian church served the parish until it was irreparably damaged by bombing in 1945.

The current church is a striking Grade II listed building on the west side of London Fields and was consecrated in February 1961. It was designed by the architect Nugent F Cachmaille-Day (1896-1976) and is a fine example of the influence of the Liturgical Movement on church architecture and art.

The design and decoration of St Michael’s does much to create a joyful sense of God at the heart of the community in London Fields.
