Having had a rough eighteen months, this church has been a calming space for me. I have entered on random occasions when it has been open during the day.

Back in the summer I was there to take part in a special service. Lovely building, but sadly I didn't get time to look around in any detail. All the people I met were very welcoming and hospitable. Lovely acoustics to play music in.
