  • I come here during lunch for some peace and quiet and when I need to think and meditate. Especially during fasting or important periods in the Christian calendar like lent. Sometimes they have activities like an orchestra which was really entertaining and calming. Bibles and Christian books are available if you like to read them as you sit in. Thanks for opening the gates of this church to us all.
  • Beautiful, beautiful church in the heart of London. Well worth a visit for the history of the place but it is also supported by a lovely, friendly worshipping community.
