St Andrew's was bombed in WW2 - the following morning someone had inscribed "Resurgam" [I will rise again] on a piece of timber. It was later carved onto a lintel and marks the entry to the rebuilt church. Its restoration is marked by a remarkable collection of 5 stained glass windows, the centrepiece based on the themes of earth, air,... More

There should be more interior photographs posted with this listing. It is simple and serene with spectacular windows, a first rate organ and ample clear light.

Not been in for a while but we came in today for an excellently put together Thanksgiving Service for a dear old friend. The organ was spectacular, the church looked and felt great, the family had balanced the series of addresses and hymns perfectly and Joe's touches were deftly done.

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
