Fetter Lane Chapel

The Moravians used this site at Fetter Lane from 1740 onwards. It was the first Moravian chapel in Britain and was officially registered in 1742. John and Charles Wesley were inspired by the experiences they shared with the Moravians and met with the Fetter Lane society frequently throughout 1738, but eventually broke away from the society in 1739.

In the 1960s this congregation was re-established at a church in Chelsea (see Fetter Lane Moravian Church). Now modern offices, there is a plaque denoting the former site (opposite John Wilkes' Statue).
