The church ix on the main square. Choir were having a rehearsal made the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. Great sounds and such a beautiful church inside and out.

The usual sort of church--nothing all that special. But the staff is friendly (mostly volunteers) and there are some interesting moments. We particularly liked the timing glass by the pulpit. We should have those in every church.

What a beautiful building located right in the town. Pay and display parking outside for 60p/hour. A service was just coming to an end when we entered. Organ music filled the air and made for a very enjoyable experience. It is a very large parish...More

What an awesome building to look at. It stands in the centre of town overlooking every building around. When the bells sound it is absolutely mesmerising. How on earth did they build this all those years ago! Awesome!

I have been in the church so many times I have lost count, however it never bores me as there is always something that I haven’t seen before. It’s so beautiful and has lots of history. I love the wooden doors

A place frequented in childhood back in late 60s and early 70s. I was even confirmed here. Although I don't do religion as an adult it is still an iconic building with a magnificent interior and Ciren just wouldn't be the same place without it

There is a very attractive entrance porch which leads to an equally splendid interior. Well worth a browse and as interesting as many cathedrals.

Really enjoyed our short walk around the church, including the Lego model they're building inside. Very impressive.

since they didn't allow people in the church when I was there, I doubt it.
