The parish lies between the City and Docklands, along The Highway - click here for a local map.Right are the current parish boundaries. The area includes extremes of wealth and deprivation, and has been home to many generations of immigrant groups (the majority now are Bengali, and also Somali), alongside lifelong East Enders, and City professionals.
The parish is in the Diocese
of London in the Stepney Episcopal
Deanery of Tower Hamlets, working with other Christians
of many traditions and denominations. We are 'clustered' with St Mary
Cable Street, St Paul Shadwell, St Peter London Docks and St Dunstan
& All Saints Stepney, and the Royal Foundation of St Katharine.
The parish school is St Paul's Whitechapel CE Primary School.
