Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

The church of Saint Matthew originated in a London Diocesan Home Mission founded in the 1860s in the parish of Saint John, Halley Street, (P93/JN1). The permanent church was built in 1871 and assigned a parish in the same year. Services had to compete with the noise of traffic in Commercial Road, the Eastern Counties Railway and the Rotherhithe Tunnel. The church was gutted by an incendiary bomb in 1941 and the parish was united with Saint John's, Halley Street. The ruins of the building were demolished.
