Hinde Street Methodist Church

The original Methodist chapel on this site was built in 1810. Charles Wesley's widow, Sarah, one of his two sons, also called Charles, and his daughter, Sally, lived together nearby and were 'class members'.

Today, Hinde Street Methodist Church is still a thriving Methodist church. The chapel building is the second on the site, dating from 1887, and the most impressive of the designs of Weslyan Methodist architect, James Weir.

The interior is very attractive, in a traditionally Methodist style with a gallery around three sides and a high pulpit, and contains many important memorial tablets to early Methodists, such as Adam Clarke and Mark Guy Pearse.

The linked adjacent building, 19 Thayer Street, was rebuilt in 1980 behind the 19th century façade and now houses the West London Mission. Hugh Price Hughes Lectures given annually.
