Bow Church is a station on the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) in Bow in Greater London, England and is on the DLR's Stratford branch, between Devons Road and Pudding Mill Lane stations. It is within 300m walking distance of Bow Road station on London Underground's District and Hammersmith and City lines. Through ticketing is allowed between both stations. The DLR station opened with the original system on 31 August 1987. The station takes its name from the nearby 14th century Bow Church, which is a Church of England church.

There is a crossover south of the station which allows trains from Stratford and Poplar to reverse here. One example of this is when the new platforms at Stratford were being constructed - trains were suspended between Bow Church and Stratford and trains from Poplar terminated here.


Five London Buses routes serve this station: 25, 108, 205, 425, N205. Additionally 25 and 108 have a 24 hour service.[6] Also routes 8, 276, 488 and the D prefix route D8 (towards Poplar only) serve the station indirectly by Bow Church.[7][8]
