Anglican church dating from 1733, where John Wesley is believed to have preached occasionally at Evening Prayer from the pulpit dating from 1676. Also on display is the pulpit from the former West Street Chapel nearby.

Both John and Charles Wesley used this pulpit when they leased the chapel from the Huguenots from 1743–91. Memorials in the church to Andrew Marvel, George Chapman, Luke Hansard (founder of Maryland) Cecil, Lord Baltimore, Roger le Strange, Thomas Earnshaw and John Flaxman. A wooden sculpture of The Resurrection, dating from 1679, used to be in the lych-gate facing St Giles' High Street. This was formerly seen by condemned prisoners on their way to the Tyburn gallows.
