Stepney Area: Tower Hamlets Deanery
Tower Hamlets is a local community of twenty neighbouring Church of England parish churches and congregations in east London.
The Deanery is synonymous with the London borough of Tower Hamlets and is bordered in the south by the river Thames. Our northern boundary is formed by the London borough of Hackney. At the western end of the deanery the parish of Christ Church Spitalfields runs up to and just into the City of London. In the east we are now famously bordered by the Queen Elizabeth II Olympic park. The canary Wharf estate sits to the south of the deanery.
We believe Tower Hamlets is a great place to live and to worship God.
Each parish maintains its own website. Tower Hamlets Deanery website is www.thcofe.org.
