Stott's principal ministry in the 1950's and 1960's was his work as senior minister of the Church of England congregation of All Souls Langham Place, London. This chapter looks at his attempts to convert those who lived in his parish, including those who lived in its working-class end, Fitzrovia. It explains both his success and his frustrations. It notes Stott's openness to the early Charismatic movement. The chapter explores the reasons for Stott's decision to retire from his work at All Souls.
