There has been a living Christian community on the site of All Hallows since 675. It is arguably the oldest church in the City of London and is still thriving with an active and friendly congregation. Much of the present building was reconstructed after bomb damage from WWII by Lord Mottistone – the Surveyor of the Fabric to St Paul’s Cathedral.

The new lighting scheme was one of our first “all LED” scheme which provides a flexible yet very low energy system for this busy city church which is open all day every day for visitors from all parts of the world.
