London’s Historic Hyde Park Chapel Inspires Hearts

The historic Hyde Park Chapel of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons) in London, England, has been remodeled and rededicated as a chapel for worship services and as a visitors’ center.

Elder Erich W. Kopischke of the Seventy and president of the Church’s Europe Area rededicated the building 1 July 2012. “My hope is that literally hundreds of thousands of people over the years will come into the building to learn about the gospel of Jesus Christ.”

The building is located on a site that had remained empty since being bombed in World War II.

The Church bought the land for the Hyde Park building when not a single member lived within a seven-mile radius.

The chapel and visitors’ center are located in one of London’s most popular tourist areas.
