CHRIS GOLLON: A CELEBRATION OF LIFE, Saturday 28 April 4pm

Chris died unexpectedly on 25 April 2017 – a huge loss to those who loved him and those who valued his artistic vision and expression. He will always be connected to St John on Bethnal Green through his magnificent Stations of the Cross, painted for us between 2000 and 2010, that now contribute so much to the life and expression of our church. Together with his family and friends we are organising a celebration of his life and art in church on Saturday 28 April at 4pm.

Stations of the Cross 2018

On Good Friday each year we walk with Jesus the Way of the Cross through a service in which we gather in front of each of the fourteen painting, hung around the church, to meditate on the unfolding events of Jesus’ trial and execution.

This has become a mixture of recorded and live pieces, involving members of the church community,...

Bethnal Green Tube Disaster Annual Memorial Service, Sunday 4 March, 2pm

Remembering the 173 people who lost their lives on the steps of the underground station on 3 March, 1943. This year giving thanks for the completion of the memorial that bears their names and brings them out of the darkness of a very long attempt at covering up what take place.

On the night of 3 March 1943, local people were...
