This place has had a number of upgrades over time. Still worth a visit for the art inside and the views across the bay. Food service a little variable

The church has not been altered but it is now an interesting arts centre and also has a good restaurant. Just a pleasant short walk from the Millennium Centre and Mermaid Quay.
