Order of service leaflet for a joint worship event for the City Temple and the Marylebone Presbyterian Church at the latter's church premises on 2nd October, 1949. The service was presided over by Dr Leslie D. Weatherhead CBE, the then minister of the City Temple. The City Temple had sustained a direct bomb hit in the London Blitz in 1941, so until the City Temple was rebuilt and reopened in 1958, services were held at - and in partnership with - various other churches in central London.

The Reverend Dr. Leslie D(ixon) Weatherhead CBE, (1893-1976) was a Methodist preacher of worldwide renown. He was known for his impressive appearance, clarity of thought and melodious voice. Some of his beliefs caused controversy among Methodists and non-Methodists alike, especially his interpretation of the Holy Trinity and the parentage of Jesus.
