The Church & Courtyard

The Bromley by Bow Church

The Bromley by Bow Centre marks its beginning with the arrival of Andrew and Susan Mawson in 1984. Andrew came as the Minister of the Church at a point when it was at a very low ebb with just a handful of members and an expectation that it would soon close or merge with another congregation. A group of elderly members suggested the Church open it’s buildings for the community to use and the Bromley by Bow Centre was born.

The early projects of the Bromley by Bow Centre were focused around the original church space and the adjoining hall. Over the years, the church has been transformed into a beautiful bright space that is open for everyone to use and is the venue for our Knowledge Share programme that welcomes visitors from around the world. The church space is complemented by a series of beautiful inter-connecting courtyard gardens, offering a profoundly restful and therapeutic environment for everyone who visits the Centre.
