They do these things so well. Anyone who didn't hear about this evening in time to get a seat really missed out. Great choir and that organ really takes some beating.

Instead of sitting in the bus stop pass the time across the road in the church and be surprised at the excellent effect the windows make within the church.Frequent special events throughout the year cater for all tastes from Choral events to lovely flower arrangements. Also available is a cuppa when you have seen it all so worth a visit.

Bright and modern stained glass windows in a light and airy church. Filled with military history both Navy and Army and a twin organ which is unique with its stereo output.

Lovely big old parish church, skilfully recreated after the blitz. Scene of major city ceremonies and frequent musical and other performances. Also serves as a well attended and supported Anglican place of worship. I sometimes wish they had not reinstalled pews because moveable seating might have been better but I can understand the wish to return to roughly the same... More

This church has a unique and most interesting history! It has been beautifully rebuilt and is now home to a vibrant and very active congregation. There is a super card/gift shop, large second hand book selection and café. It is a quiet place for contemplation and prayer, with a friendly welcome from volunteers. There is a wide choice of services... More

It is an old church, said to have been used by Drake etc and we cannot but be impressed by the success and quality of the rebuilding after the Blitz but by far the best feature of this building are the Piper windows, three at the eastern end behind the altars and the other under the tower at the west....

Right in the middle of Plymouth City Centre. We were lucky enough to see a wedding taking place there. Just good to sit inside to escape the hustle and bustle from the busy city.

I listened to a wonderful concert of operatic music and arias in this superb old church on Saturday evening. The acoustics are great but it is not this that I wanted to tell you about. Here is a church that was almost brought to its knees during the Blitz on Plymouth in 1941 but it has returned to its former... More
