What's On


We are located in the busy West End of London and, as well as being the Parish Church of Covent Garden, we are also 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 as wide variety of theatre memorial services and concerts, totalling almost 300 events last year.
