St Nicholas Cole Abbey Church, London
This church in the City of London located on what is now Queen Victoria Street. Recorded from the twelfth century, the church was destroyed in the Great Fire of London in 1666 and rebuilt by the office of Sir Christopher Wren. The church suffered substantial bomb damage from German bombs during the London Blitz in the Second World War and was reconstructed by Arthur Bailey in 1961-2.
The church is named after the 4th century St Nicholas of Myra. “Cole Abbey” is derived from “coldharbour” a medieval word for a traveller’s shelter or shelter from the cold. The church was designated a Grade I listed building on 4 January 1950. LinkExternal link.
In 2006, the Church of England announced that St. Nicholas Cole Abbey would become a national centre for Religious Education. The Culham Institute, a Church of England educational body which promotes and develops RE in schools, will move its headquarters to St. Nicholas Cole Abbey LinkExternal link
