LUMEN UNITED REFORMED CHURCH & CAFE88 Tavistock Place, London, WC1H 9RS [MAP]
Lumen United Reformed Church in Bloomsbury (formerly known as Regent Square United Reformed Church) was originally a Regency Gothic Church, designed as a miniature version of York Minster.
The building was severely damaged in World War II bombings, and was completely rebuilt in 1965. In the early 2000s the building was extensively remodelled and modernised by architects Theis and Khan, with the finished building winning a 2009 RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) Award.
