Serbian Orthodox Church, 89 Lancaster Road, Ladbroke Grove, London W11 1QQ
- by CityWest Residential
Perhaps one of the most striking buildings in Ladbroke Grove is the Serbian Orthodox Church Saint Sava, with its angular shape and interesting detailing. Situated less than one minute away from the Ladbroke Grove tube station, this church was originally build as an Anglican church in 1903. After the Second World War, the church was purchased and adapted to suit the specific needs of the Orthodox Serbian community who were now based in West London. The church was ultimately consecrated and officially became part of the Serbian Orthodox Church network in 1952.
If you are given the opportunity to look inside this church, you really must. You will immediately feel transported from the busy Lancaster Road just outside the door, to an atmosphere of calm and reverence inside. The interior of the church looks truly magnificent, adorned with accurate copies of frescoes painted inside several medieval Serbian monasteries. The church holds an important position within the wider Orthodox Serbian community.
