So - I am not talking about the liturgy, the services, the theology, the congregation, the mission ... simply the wonderful architecture. Is this the funkiest church in central London? Every time I walk past this chapel (much the better term given its Welsh non-conformist loyalty), I get a bit of a tingle. It's just off the north side of Oxford Street, where Soho starts to shade into Fitzrovia - how is it that the most bohemian haunts in London have the best churches?
The building dates from 1889 - it's now the Welsh Church in Central London or the Eglwys Gymraeg Canol Llundain. As its website explains - here's the link - several Welsh churches in central London have banded together in an initiative aimed at safeguarding their future..
There are plans to renovate the building and adapt part of it to help ease the financial burden of its upkeep.
It's a Grade 2 listed building - there's a really nice etching of the exterior on the chapel's website, and a photo of the interior here.
