St Stephen Walbrook Church
A church of Saxon and Norman origins destroyed in the Great Fire of 1666, St Stephen Walbrook was Christopher Wren's own parish church for which he produced a remarkable classical design of simple beauty. Its rectangular interior is divided by pillars supporting eight arches and a coffered dome with central lantern which can be seen as a precursor of his design for St Paul's Cathedral. The font, altar rails and altar piece are original, the organ of 1765, is integral with the Baroque west screen. John Vanburgh is buried here. A massive marble altar of 1972 by Henry Moore is centrally located.
Chad Varah 1911-2007, then vicar of St Stephens, founded 'Samaritans' here in 1953, the original telephone hand set is on display. The London Internet Church is based here.
