Corpus Christi Catholic Church


Corpus Christi Catholic Church, Maiden Lane is the Westminster Diocesan Shrine of the Blessed Sacrament, situated in the heart of Covent Garden. Opened in 1874 by Cardinal Manning, this was the first church to be dedicated to ‘Corpus Christi’ – the Body of Christ – since the Reformation. The church has recently undergone extensive restoration and was reopened in 2018 by Cardinal Nichols.

The Church is open every day from 7:30am – approx. 7pm, with daily Mass, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and Confessions.

Also known as the Actors’ Church, serving Catholic Actors in the West End, this ‘hidden gem’ of Covent Garden is a sanctuary of prayerful peace and calm amidst the chaos of a busy city. Mgr Ronald Knox preached here for many years and the church also features in Graeme Greene’s novel ‘The End of the Affair’.

Corpus Christi is open to all.
