In thè midst of a busy city you step through the doors and nothing else in this world exists. Loose yourself in the tranquility and sheer marvel of the very special little church. Take time out and Savoury true peace . It has a range of Stunning architecture but you almost don't notice as you melt into this little oasis.

You must visit this wonderful gem of a church. We visited at xmas time and enjoyed the wonderful sound of the choir. I felt at peace in this church and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to all my family and friends.

Not a tourist attraction but a busy city centre church of historic, architectural, cultural and religious significance. It's a welcoming place, a haven from the busy-ness of the city centre (like St Mary's, Mulberry Street) and an apt place to call for refreshment and reflection.

On a rainy day in Manchester, trying to avoid the crowds around the nearby Arndale Centre, I found the beautiful Grade 1 listed St Ann's Church, at the end of St Ann's Square. The building was first consecrated in 1712, and is one of the few historic churches in the city centre area. The church, a short five minute walk... More

Looks old, smells old, and is actually quite old. Is located just a few meters from some of the busiest streets of Manchester. Because of that is an oasis of peace in there. If you are a religious person, is an enjoyable place.

Bonnie Prince Charlie rode into the square in 1745 and visited the church. It's an atmospheric and historic building, but still very much a functioning place of worship. Walk round it and read the old gravestones and don't miss the stained glass windows.

In the midst of Christmas shopping in the middle of St Ann's square, busy with the annual Christmas markets, you can find, if you want it, the real meaning of Christmas. Here is St Ann's church a small but beautifully formed lovely haven from the bustling crowds outside, where you can gather your thoughts and focus on a peaceful serenity... More

I have to say that I haven't been to St Ann's church for religious purposes, I have been to many classical music concerts and exhibitions there. An interesting place.
