A Catholic Church just along from the Cathedral. An unexceptional outside leads up through the doors into a small lobby and then through into the Church proper. Along both sides, there are excellent wall sculptures. Large sculptures adorn the altar. An interesting place to spend...More

The architecture of SFX church seems out of place in Hereford with it sandstone building and Black and White House . It is a richly decorated church which is worth a visit if your on your way to the Cathedral or the river .

Well worth a visit if you are in Hereford. The interior will be like stepping into a Florentine church or anywhere in a big Italian city. For this experience alone, a visit is recommended.

An unusual church architecturally, but a nice place to come for a quiet moment of contemplation or for Mass.

Near Hereford Cathedral, this hidden gem is not registered by most of the public as they walk past it. Best to take in its facade from the opposite side of the street. Very grand and opulent in its surroundings. Peace and tranquility once entering.
