St John on Bethnal Green is a grade one-listed church designed by Sir John Soane and opened in 1828. The church owns and permanently exhibits Chris Gollon's '14 Stations of the Cross', commissioned in 2000 and installed in 2009. St John's regularly holds exhibitions, music events and film screenings. The Belfry hosts contemporary art exhibitions and is a free gallery space allowing artists to respond to the architecture and ambience of its location, within the context of the building, the local community and geography.
