Prefab timber chapel pays homage to Chernobyl disaster victims

The 75-square-meter Belarusian Memorial Chapel is the first wooden church built in London since the Great Fire of 1666. Set in a tranquil garden belonging to the Marian House, a community and cultural center for the UK Belarusian community, the church’s natural and unfinished timber facade complements the thirteen statutorily protected trees that surround the building.

The chapel accommodates 40 people at a time within the nave and raised altar in the apse.
