In June 2018 we partnered to open a ground-breaking church brewery, Hackney Church Brew Co. Founded with a vision to produce world-class beer and serve the community it belongs to, we have seen how God has used it’s tremendous growth to pour back into programmes such as Lighthouse, that are helping the most vulnerable in East London. Visit the Brewery.


Bee Team
Meet the Hackney Church Bees! We currently have about 100,000 of them living in our hives, pollinating their surroundings. They tell a lived parable for us to go out into our surroundings and play our part in the flourishing of the city.

Hackney Bells
St John at Hackney’s Bell Tower is one of the major hubs for bell ringing in East London, as well as a central feature of the worship life of the church. There are a growing number of people getting involved. To find out more, click here.



For hundreds of years our green spaces have provided an oasis of calm in the heart of the city. Today, we’re bringing life to the city with a thriving Apiary, Garden, Orchard and much more. Proceeds from The Garden project go back into our work with the community. To find out more, click here.
