St Paul’s has been a generous patron of the arts through the generosity of the Parochial Church Council and many ad memoria by it’s loyal and faithful membership throughout its history. The church is home for a large selection of stained glass, many from the original William Morris workshops at Walthamstow, now a museum.


┬áThe Church is proud to own a set of contemporary ‘Stations of the Crown of Thorns’ a series of 14 individual pieces featuring a large Triptych. These were created by the local Goodmayes artist Henry Shelton the founding member of commission4mission.
