Opened in 1912, the Methodist Central Hall Westminster marked the centenary of John Wesley's death (the founder of Methodism). The design was chosen from 132 entries in an anonymous architectural competition. The design had to be non-Gothic and should not resemble a church. The intention was to create non intimidating but welcoming buildings in which all would feel comfortable. The winning design was submitted by Messrs Lancaster and Rickards of London. No cross is visible on the outer building or any overtly religious symbolism. The building itself is Viennese Baroque in style with Romanesque decoration. Picture taken early January 2007.
