An iconic landmark, St Luke's 'Bombed Out' Church has been at the heart of Liverpool since 1832. Hollowed by an incendiary device in the May Blitz of 1941, the church today functions as a living war memorial and creative community hub. Since 2007 the church has been operating as a managed ruin and multidisciplinary arts venue with a programme of curated events, community engagement and creative learning projects. A gateway building within the city, crucial to both its past and present, the Bombed Out Church is a place for everyone. A committed team from diverse backgrounds have devoted tens of thousands of hours to keeping St Luke's Church open to the public and reinvigorated by the arts. Bombed Out Church recently became a Community Interest Company and has been supported on its route to international recognition by a dedicated community of friends and volunteers. Together, Bombed Out Church stands as testament to history and to the spirit of Liverpool.

St. Luke’s Church was the third church that we visited in Liverpool, but this one is different than other two. The roofless shell and the clock tower are all that’s left after heavy bombing during the Second World War. That’s why its nickname is the...More

When you walking around China town, your close by. Worth the short walk to view from the outside the still standing bombed church from WW2.

Sense and Vision and Liverpool Council usually qualifies as an Oxymoron, so full marks to whoever it was who made the decision not to redevelop the bombed out Church of St Luke, but to keep it as a memorial to those who were lost in...More

If you're in the area of Bold Street (which is good for interesting shopping and eating) it's worth seeing this building whose major achievement is that the exterior walls and tower survived the Luftwaffe and remain standing, in relatively good condition, to this day despite...More
