A Deprived City Centre Church that really is a let down. Talked to people in shop there and it really made me never want to come back. Seemed more concerned about appearance than being the centre for Christ in Plymouth.

I have attended many a good choral concert at this venue in the evening. the organ sounds good to me and space for several hundreds in the audience. nice coffee area at the back during the day (not sure if every day?) the stewards at the concerts are friendly and helpful.

This church has a warm welcome for all. They have services and a cafe and a chat mid week. Also great books for sale. If you need a quiet place to reflect and take stock of life .the door is open.

My wife and I visited St. Andrew's last week. WOW WOW WOW . It's not the most distinctive church in the UK but if you speak to one of the warders of the church it is one of the most fascinating.

A charming example of good architecture to create a feeling of comforting welcome, even if you do not hold strong religious views.

This beautiful church was very badly damaged during World War II. Services were later held in the open-air shell of the building until it was reconstructed. Displayed on the walls are many 18th and early 19th Century memorials and there are magnificent contemporary glass windows.Those above the altar at the East end depict the elements namely Earth, Air, Fire and...

This church was Rebuilt after being bombed in World War 2. It has now risen to become a minster. Peace and tranquility in the middle of a busy city. Parking is not free though. However it can be accessed via free parking at park and ride at Milehouse and Coypool.
