In February it was nice and quiet and peaceful which made it a better visit than last April. There is a definite 'feel' to this church. There is a good selection of prayer cards which are 3 for £1. It is not cold inside despite 4 degrees outside! . Interesting architecture.

The Older patrons of york run a little cafe from this little chapel, with reasonably priced food and drinks, and there is a mini market that sells books and toys all for charity. i bought two books there and enjoyed supporting them.

Indicated by a large clock hanging into the street this church is a fragment of the much larger building devastated (along with the neighbouring Guildhall) by an air raid in 1942.
