I found this beautiful little church and was very impressed by the entire building. I didn't take a photo but did purchase a postcard. Next time I visit I may well attend a service here.

a really lovely little church in the middle of Gloucester quays, there is ample parking nearby, it is close to shops and museums, in quiet spot. so atmospheric you can imagine the sailors asking for blessings before they went out to sea
