London's smallest church


London's smallest church

The smallest church in London is dedicated to Armenia.

Location: Iverna Gardens, Kensington, W8 6TP

Description: This arresting little church was designed by Mews and Davis but was closely modelled on a bell-tower in St. Haghpat in Armenia. It was built in 1922 and its foundation stone was laid in February 1922 and the consecration took place on 11 January 1923, with additions built on in 1937 and 1950.

It is here that the Armenian community in London come to for their worship. Armenia is surprisingly the oldest Christian nation in the world. Situated between the Black Sea and Caspian Sea, Armenia declared Christianity the state religion in 301 after St Gregory the Illuminator converted King Trdat III.
