The Hidden Gem.

This lovely church is well worth a visit. It's only small but full of character. It is hidden away opposit the town hall.

This church claims to be the "hidden gem" and that is true. We were actually outside the main door and didn't realise that we had actually found it. Inside, it is a typical Catholic church, somewhat ornate but not overly ostentatious.

If you are going to Manchester you should definitely take a few minutes out of your day to pay a visit to this truly beautiful little church.

I visited this Church for the first ever time ever in the early part of a Thursday afternoon whilst visiting Manchester to enjoy the Christmas Markets. My Wife explained that this Church is known locally as "The Hidden Gem", and she had visited it many times over the years whilst working in Manchester, and like many other visitors had always...

It is easy to see how it has come by its nickname, as you would never imagine the interior from looking at the... More

Is a quite difficult to find it but the effort is well worth. Is very beautiful inside, very quiet and you can feel the divine blessing.
