This is a warm and welcoming Church with a lovely atmosphere. The décor is quite reserved and tasteful. My most intense experience of the Easter celebrations was here. It holds a special place in my heart. Would recommend to all.

A beautiful place to visit where you will receive a warm welcome. You can pray, receive a blessing when services are taking place or just appreciate the architecture.

My son and his now wife were married there 5yrs ago, the inside is absolutely well worth visiting. They have the most wonderful choir, and the priest "Father John" is such a nice man. I can't fault anything about this lovely place.
