On a recent visit to London, I wandered through the City from Covent Garden to the Monument, and was struck by the great dearth of Churches. I began to understand why Richard Chartres feels he cannot possibly spare any to the Ordinariate…

All Hallows-by-the-Tower
All Hallows-on-the-Wall
St Andrew-by-the-Wardrobe
St Andrew, Holborn
St Andrew Undershaft
St Anne and St Agnes
St Bartholomew-the-Great
St Bartholomew-the-Less
St Benet, Paul’s Wharf
St Botolph Aldersgate
St Botolph’s Aldgate
St Botolph-without-Bishopsgate
St Bride’s, Fleet Street

St Clement, Eastcheap
St Dunstan-in-the-West
St Edmund, King and Martyr
St Ethelburga, Bishopsgate
St Etheldreda’s Church
St Giles’s Cripplegate
St Helen’s, Bishopsgate
St James, Garlickhythe
St Katherine Cree
St Lawrence Jewry
St Leonard, Foster Lane
St Magnus the Martyr
St Margaret Lothbury
St Margaret Pattens
St Martin, Ludgate
St Mary Abchurch
St Mary Aldermary
St Mary-at-Hill
St Mary-le-Bow
St Mary Woolnoth
St Michael, Cornhill
St Michael, Paternoster Royal
St Nicholas, Cole Abbey
St Olave, Hart Street
St Peter upon Cornhill
St Sepulchre-without-Newgate
St Stephen Walbrook
St Vedast alias Foster

All doubtless crowded on Sundays and weekdays. But maybe there are some outside the City of London…

But it is terribly UNecumenical of him, which seems exceedingly odd considering that he is ‘Chairman of the Ecumenical “London Church Leaders”, a director of Coexist Foundation – a charity promoting interfaith understanding.’ AND ‘He founded St Ethelburga’s Centre for Reconciliation and Peace and is currently the Chairman of the Trustees.’
