New Chapel, or New Church, in Chapel Street, near Tuttle Fields, being a Chapel of Ease in the Parish of St. Margaret Westminster, but now design'd for a new Church without Reparation or Addition. It is situated near the middle of a large and decent Church Yard, or Burying Ground, and was built and finished in 1636; but afterwards it was plundered, and converted into a Stable for Horses, in the Time of the Civil War; fitter indeed for those innocent Creatures, than the sacrilegious Regicides that put them there; as they did also spoil the Mother Church; but after the Restauration of King Charles the Second, it was repaired, enlarged, and beautified. Morning Pr. every Day at 9, but on all Holy days, when there is a Sermon, not until 10; Evening Pr. at 5, from Candlemas to Michaelmas; at 4 from that to All Saints Day; and at 3 from thence to Candlemas; a preparation S. for the approaching Sacrament, on the last Friday of the Month, at 3; several Charity S. in Advent, and other Times of the Year; on most part of Holy days, and all publick Days appointed by the Government..
