THE Bishop of London will be visiting an East End church tonight night to celebrate its 50th anniversary.

Dr Richard Chartres will be joining church-goers to mark half a century since St Paul's in Bow Common was rebuilt after being damaged in the Second World War.

Since the rebuild, the church has hosted the textile exhibition Shamiana which was transferred from the V&A to St Paul's and provided space for community arts projects including Tower Hamlets Stitches in Time.

And last summer, the church hosted 71 European Vietnamese pilgrims who took part in a major Mission at a neighbouring Vietnamese Roman Catholic Chaplaincy.

The celebrations will kick-off at 7.30pm.
