Facts

  • St. Peter's is reputedly the oldest place of Christian worship in London, having been founded on the site of the Roman basillica by Lucius, the first Christian ruler of Britain, in 179AD.
  • The church is effectively invisible from surrounding streets as it rises within a tiny courtyard, accessed via Cornhill. The dome and obelisk spire are surmounted by an unusual weather vane; a 10ft long St. Peter's key.
  • The church is now used as a Christian Aid centre.
