Welcome to the website of St Botolph without Aldgate. St Botolph’s, a Church of England parish in the Diocese of London, sits on the boundary of the City of London and the East End.
St Botolph’s has a lively, diverse congregation which meets on Sundays and during the week. We believe strongly in the love of God for all people, and the good news of Jesus Christ who in time on earth embraced all people, drawing them into a community of faith. All are welcome at St Botolph’s and we are proud to be an inclusive church of people who are male and female, straight and gay, of all backgrounds and situations and we work together to celebrate the glorious diversity of humanity both in the church and in our community.
We welcome people of all faiths, and none, and hope that, as people have been doing since at least the twelfth century, you may find here a place of rest, prayer and reflection, of challenge and celebration. The church is open on Mondays to Fridays 0900 – 1500 hrs; though we are closed on Bank Holidays. (If you are making a special trip into London to visit St Botolph’s, please contact us in advance in case there are any special occasions or circumstances that may affect the open times on that day.) The Church will be closed on the mornings of Thursday 19 January and Friday 20 January 2017.
