Stepney Meeting House, United Reformed Church, Stepney Way, East London
Stepney Meeting House, United Reformed Church, Stepney Way, East London
Although it clearly is a church, this building calls itself a 'meeting house'. This modern building houses a congregation which dates back to 1644. As they were dissenters, they were not then allowed to use the term 'church', so when they acquired their first building in the 18th Century, the term 'Meeting House' was used, and in modern times is a pleasing link with history. The building itself shows that it is still possible in modern times to construct something whose lines are pleasant and harmonious.
