A beautifully cared for vibrant building in the centre of the city. The space is open, modern, lively. Stunning John Piper windows, altar, side chapels. I would love to have head the organ played with its separated pipe groupings.

This church is huge and has an impressive presence when you walk in the door. It s not old or has special decorations aside from the wonderful modern stained glass within the East windows. On a sunny day the light from these is breath-taking.

The motto over the door, erected after total destruction by enemy action in WW2 sums up the importance of this church to the city's morale in the darkest days of war, and the commitment to peace. Very interesting exhibitions: new, modern stained glass; and a...More
