The earliest reference to this parish church is 1282. It was destroyed by the Great Fire of London in 1666 and rebuilt by Christoper Wren in 1671. The Bank of England began buying up the property in the parish in the 1700's and in 1781 bought the church itself from the Bishop of London. The church was then torn down the following year and the parish joined to St Margaret Lothbury. Parish inhabitants dropped from 92 houses in 1732 to 19 houses in 1800. The churchyard was requisitioned itself in 1798 and lies under the Bank's Garden Court.

The human remains from the churchyard were dug up in 1867 and moved to Nunhead Cemetery. More remains were dug up in 1933 to Nunhead during further renovations.

St Christopher le Stocks current parish clerk is Stephen Plumb, appointed by the rector and parochial council of St Margaret Lothbury.
