Completed in 1826, St. John’s is a Georgian church in the Classical style, and the only one built to the design of Francis Edwards,  Sir John Soane's foremost pupil. The building is a large example of a Commissioners’ church, with its original floor plan intact, as well as notable galleries and décor, including a spectacular painted ceiling. This was executed in the early 20th century by the architect Joseph Arthur Reeve.

Dedicated to St. John the Baptist, its name preserves the memory of a local priory dissolved by King Henry VIII.

In Victorian London the parish's work was recognised by social campaigners, such as the philanthropist Charles Booth, for its welfare work in a deteriorating inner-city environment. To give opportunities to the "local poor", the first vicar founded what became London's largest savings bank and St John's National Schools which still thrive. Many members of the church became missionaries in Africa and Asia, among them the first Bishop of Chota Nagpur, the Rt Revd Jabez Cornelius Whiteley, whose father was Chaplain to the Haberdashers' Aske's Hospital School formerly located in Pitfield Street.
