This web site provides information about these activities and the liturgical life of the parish. Read our Parish Profile to get a flavour of who we are, what we do and how we do it.

The church is a Grade II listed building with an interesting and unusual history, having been built originally as an Anglican church. The pre-Raphaelite stained glass windows in the church were designed mainly by Edward Burne-Jones, with contributions from Ford Madox Brown and William Morris and constitute one of the best collections of stained-glass from the William Morris Company in the North of England.
