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.

This is well worth a visit it was renovated in the 1990s and is spectacular inside. Warm and welcoming. Beautiful stations of the cross. St John Kemble's hand in a repository to the right of the altar

The St. Francis Xavier's is a catholic church with a different architecture and color, looking very bright and joyful. The interior is in the same style like the exterior and creates a very nice light effect. The entrance is on the left side.

Even if this church is closed you can still view the inside from huge glass panels.A lot of money has been spent on this and it is well worth a visit.We live in this city but this is not our church.

Despite the rather peculiar outside paint, the inside of the church is beautiful and makes you feel a genuine connection with God. Lovely church.
