An amazing church, full of history, but also a place to sit in quiet contemplation and gather your thoughts.

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.

Attended a Sunday Family Service. There were a lot of children who went off to their activities. The service only lasted an hour but was just what we needed on a weekend away. it seemed quite a friendly place with lots going on.

Before matins Sunday morning, at least one night a week and sometimes before weddings. I've always though that it would be good if the very best was put in for a funeral but apart from a single tolling bell I've not noticed... More
