Definitely worth a visit. We preferred this church to its bigger ‘cousins’ St Paul’s and St Patrick’s. Beautiful stained glass, in a lovely shaped space.

This is a lovely old church in the heart of Melbourne. From an architectural perspective it is very interesting. Well worth going if you can actually get into the church.

The gentleman that greeted us as we entered could not have been friendlier. He gave us a pamphlet that described each of the stained glass windows. I liked the color tones to the stained glass windows - in browns and blues. Beautiful church.
