St Peter, Paul's Wharf is a former notable church in the City of London.

The Mortality Bill for the year 1665, published by the Parish Clerk’s Company, shows 97 parishes within the City of London.[1] By September 6th the city lay in ruins, 86 churches having been destroyed.[2] In 1670 a Rebuilding Act was passed and a committee set up under the stewardship of Sir Christopher Wren to decide which would be rebuilt.[3] Fifty-one were chosen, but St Peter Paul’s Wharf[4] to the north of Upper Thames Street in Queenhithe Ward[5] was one of the unlucky minority never to be rebuilt.[6] First mentioned in the 12th Century [7]the parish was defiant in continuing to use the Book of Common Prayer during the Civil War. [8] Following the fire it was united to St Benet Paul's Wharf.[9] Partial records still survive at IGI.[10].
