One church, two congregations Feb 20, 2017
Although a Union Jack was flying gaily from the tower of this church, entering reveals that this building is shared by two nationalities.

This 19th century strucure is unusual in having an octagonal nave. It also has two high altars. One of them, facing the main entrance, is a conventional Church of England ('C of E') high altar. To its left as you face it is an Orthodox Christian iconostasis.

This church is used by two congreagations: Cof E and Romanian Orthodox. The iconostasis was moved from the Antim Monastery in Bucharest to this church in, I believe, the 1960s.
