Since 2015, the French Protestant Church in London has launched a program of mini-exhibitions aimed at illustrating a theme or a significant event in the history of the French Huguenots in London.
You can visit the exhibition after the Sunday service or by organising a visit.
AS IN THE DAYS OF OUR FATHERs:
the French Protestant Church of London during the Second World War
During the Second World War and under the leadership of its pastor Frank Christol, chaplain of the Free French Forces, our church was the rallying point of the protestant Free French, some famous such as André Philip or Jacques Soustelle, or others more obscure, such as the numerous soldiers from Overseas Territories, from Tahiti or New Caledonia for example, whom Pastor Christol regularly received at the Presbytery.

We are pleased to open to the public this little-known jewel.
We propose three types of visits:
– self-guided during our open days. The dates of our open days are announced on our website’s main page. Please check regularly. Our self-guided tour leaflet can be downloaded here.
– for individuals, we can, according to our own constraints, organise tailor-made visits of the temple for a group of a minimum of eight people;
– for school visits, within the framework of the curriculum.
From April 2019, major renovation works will take place at the church. As a result, access to the church will be very limited until the end of 2019.
