We are located in the busy West End of London and, as well as being the Parish Church of Covent Garden, we are affectionately known as The Actors’ Church’ because of our long association with the theatre community.
This beautiful church, built by Inigo Jones, has been here since 1633 and we are also proud to have an attractive churchyard where people can rest and find some peace and quiet in what can be a stressful and busy part of the city.
Services are held every Sunday (at 11am) and most weekdays. We also host a wide variety of theatre, memorial services and concerts, totalling almost 300 events annually.
Opening times are:
MONDAY to FRIDAY: 08:30am-5:00pm (later if hosting an event)
SATURDAY: Opening times depend on events (please see calendar)
SUNDAY: 09:00am-1:00pm (5:00pm when there is evensong)
Please note: The church and grounds may occasionally have to be closed for maintenance or other reasons. We try to post these closures on our website but it is not always possible to give advanced notice. If you are planning a special visit we advise phoning the office in advance.
