St Mark's Church, Silvertown or St Mark's Church, Victoria Docks is a former church building in Silvertown in east London, located on North Woolwich Road.
It takes one of its names from the nearby Royal Docks.
It was listed as Grade II in 1971and now houses the Brick Lane Music Hall.
The church was founded as a joint church and school, housed in an iron building and opened in 1857.
The building survived the war but the decline of the London docks in the 1960s led to a sharp drop in local population and major slum clearances in the area.
The church was declared redundant in 1974 and its parish merged with those of two of its former mission churches, St Barnabas' and St John's – St Barnabas was also declared redundant, with St John's becoming the sole church for the resulting parish of North Woolwich with Silvertown.
The church building was bought in 1979 by Newham Council, with the intention of turning it into a museum.
A major fire in 1981 largely destroyed the roof, which was replaced between 1984 and 1989.
After the fire the Brick Lane Music Hall took on the building, converting it to its present use in 2003–2004 to host traditional music hall and (since 2006) produced shows.
Brick Lane Music Hall had opened in 1982 in the former Truman’s Brewery building in Brick Lane, before moving to Shoreditch and then its present building.
It was established by Vincent Hayes, who had previously performed with his band at the Lord Hood pub, where he was landlord during the 1980s.
The church's exterior was left largely unchanged, whilst a stage, bar, kitchen and lighting and sound equipment were added to the interior, with offices housed in the church's former vestry.
In 2004 a mural was painted on the wall behind the church's exterior war memorial, whilst a new lighting and sound rig was installed in October 2006.
Audiences are seated at tables in a cabaret-style arrangement and food is served during the interval at matinees and before the show in the evenings.
Brick Lane Music Hall is licensed for weddings and civil partnership ceremonies as well as being involved in workshops for schools, as well as taking shows to community centres, care homes and hospices throughout the East End.
