Faith Matters

St Clement Danes

St Clement Danes is the Central Church of the Royal Air Force. The original Wren building was badly damaged by enemy action in 1941. It was rebuilt by the Royal Air Force in 1958 to become its spiritual heart.

It is a living church prayed in daily and visited throughout the year by thousands seeking solace and reflection.
