This is called the "hidden gem" and aptly named, it's not easily found even with a map, better signage would be appreciated, I called in and was impressed by the quiet atmosphere of prayer, this is clearly a much loved place of worship by the local community. The famous paintings of the Via Crucis, would not be of everyone's taste,... More

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'm not a religious person, at all..... But this place is tucked away behind so very modern buildings and it's great that these have been built around this church and it hasn't been knocked down..... The inside of this small church is stunningly beautiful. The architecture is magnificent.... And it was very calming inside. The stain glass windows are lovely,... More

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...

I have passed by the "Hidden Gem" many times but it has always been closed. On this occasion it was open so for the first time in my life I was able to view the magnificent interior. 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.
