Administrative History:
  • The Regent Square Presbyterian Church was originally established by a fund set up by the Highland Society of London in 1808 to provide for Gaelic-language worship in London. Its first premises were in what is now Hatton Yard in Hatton Garden and it moved to its current site at the corner of Regent Square and Tavistock Place in 1827. The Church was affiliated to the Church of Scotland and the Free Church of Scotland before joining the Presbyterian Church of England. The church was badly damaged by bombing in World War Two and was remodelled in 1965.

    In 1972 when the Presbyterian and Congregationalist churches merged, the Regent Square Presbyterian Church became the Regent Square United Reformed Church. It has subsequently changed its name to the Lumen United Reformed Church. For more historical information see http://www.lumenurc.org.uk/Lumenhistory.htm (last accessed February 2009).
