Christ Church, Spitalfields

Lee McGinty built this rendition of Christ Church, Spitalfields. In 1710, the English Parliament established a commission to build fifty churches to serve the growing London population. This church was built in an area dominated by Huguenots and other denominations not in the Church of England in order to emphasize the authority of the Anglican Church.
