Here at the Highbury Centre, we believe in adding value to your stay wherever we can. With that in mind, here’s our pick of the Top Ten Christian Attractions in the capital. We hope that they are a real blessing!

 

  1. Hillsong Church. One church across a number of spaces, The Dominion Tottenham Court Road, the Warehouse Project, Bermondsey and Bernie Grant Arts Centre, Tottenham. Check out service times at hillsong.com.
  2. Husk Coffee and Creative Space: a welcoming space run by London City Mission in Limehouse, East London. Coffee, cakes, lunch and snacks and a gallery featuring local artists. Ideal for a pitstop for coffee and cake if you’re visiting nearby attractions. huskcoffee.com.
  3. The Museum of the Book at the London Baptist Church, Salmon Lane, Limehouse. The church has a rare collection of original ancient manuscript and printed Bibles. Manuscripts date from 4000 BC to AD 1600 and are written in more than 20 languages. Admission is free for anyone attending a church service. The church, which is part of the Strict and Particular tradition, can be reached on +44 (0)7557 269911 or at info@churchofthebook.com.
  4. Chapel of St John the Evangelist at the Tower of London. Historically used as the private chapel for those staying in the White Tower, this is one of the oldest intact places of worship in the capital.
  5. Aldersgate Flame. This bronze sculpture just outside the Museum of London near the Barbican marks the spot of John Wesley’s conversion on 24th May 1738.
  6. St Paul's Cathedral. Known as “the parish church of London”, this magnificent Wren building is awe-inspiring. Come to visit the Whispering Gallery, gaze at the beautiful interior or just spend some time soaking in the Lord’s peace.
  7. The Hidden History of Women in the East End tour. A completely different type of tour conceived by a local vicar, the manager of the Beyond the Streets project and a local historian, the Hidden History tells the story of the Jack the Ripper crimes from the women’s point of view. No salacious details or glorifying of the killer as with other tours. To book, visit eventbrite
  8. Methodist Central Hall, Westminster. Just over 100 years old, this is a welcoming and beautiful building which is well worth a look.
  9. The Temple Church. Located just off Fleet Street, this is one of the oldest churches in London with a number of historic effigy tombs. Find out more at http://www.templechurch.com.
  10. Westminster Abbey. Not only owned by the Royal Family, but also a World Heritage Site. The new Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Galleries are well worth a look. westminster-abbey.org
