"Enter Rest & Pray" is inscribed above the doorway of these government offices.  OK it was originally a church but this spot has a bit of a checkered history.  A small chapel that once stood here was demolished during the building of the Piccadilly Line.  The Holy Trinity Church that was built in the early 1900's was badly damaged in a fire in 1985.  Further back residential houses stood on this site and the writer Mary Lamb lived in one. Sadly she wasn't like a little lamb and she actually stabbed her Mother to death ... poor thing was of course insane.
