St Sarkis (Armenian: Լոնդոնի Սուրբ Սարգիս հայկական եկեղեցի) is an Armenian church and a Grade II* listed building in Iverna Gardens, Kensington, London, England. It was constructed in 1922–23 by Calouste Gulbenkian as a memorial to his parents, and the architect was Arthur Davis.[1][2] The largest Armenian church in the United Kingdom—St Yeghiche, a converted Anglican church—is in South Kensington.
