  • The 300 year old Chapel of Ease just off Oxford Street – IanVisits
    Reddit Spitalfields Life The Ladies who Bus Wanstead Meteo West Hampstead Life Just behind Debenhams on Oxford Street can be found a building that looks like a church but isn t A building that was consecrated but not as a church even though it is used for worship What was Oxford Chapel then St Peter Vere Street and now sort of a religious office block is in fact nearly 300 years old What was officially built as a Chapel of Ease it was a sort of mini church built for those who couldn t make it to the main Marylebone parish church for services Although a modest little building it has grand heritage Built in 1722 24 it was designed by James Gibbs who is more famous for the at the time highly controversial design of St Martin in the Fields at Trafalgar Square What looks conventional to us today of putting the church steeple above the main entrance was radical at the time It s curious that he designed both the Oxford Chapel and St Martins at the same time and yet frontage apart they are such exceptionally different buildings In part due to their size and purpose but also in design The Chapel seems to have a sort of New England feel to is as if an American building has been dropped into the middle of London which is not entirely a surprise as the design found considerably more favour abroad than it did in the UK at the time Today though the building is still technically consecrated as a place for prayer it is actually occupied by the London Institute for Contemporary Christianity who upon reading about them seem to be at the rather uncomfortable end of fervent religiosity for my taste Going in I spied a
