The joint dedication, first recorded in 1467, is to St Anne, the mother of the virgin, and St Agnes, a virgin martyr aged 13 who died around AD 304.
One rather gruesome detail is that the vicar was beheaded when he spoke out against the beheading of Charles I in 1649.
The church was damaged in the Great Fire and was rebuilt by Sir Christopher Wren on the old foundations between 1676 and 1687.
The church has been used by Lutheran congregations since 1954.
At one point in its history, this church was known as "St Anne in the Willowes", presumably when this part of the city was rather less built up! However more recent developments have created more space around this attractive building, making a much improved environment to enjoy this church.
