I came here because the Tripadvisor listing led me to the website and I then decided I had to go and see. Like most of my friends and probably my generation I have no faith to speak of, but I am curious about powerful creeds ritual and symbolic architecture. I do not know how this old church managed to raise the cash for this spectacular reordering of this large but very traditional and I suspect late Victorian interior. No matter, what has been done is fantastic. I follow the meaning of the various gestures and the flow of the shapes and functions. It is seductive. I can imagine being mesmerised and drawn magnetically through the mass and the sacraments. For me the whole process has no personal meaning but you see the clergy and the believers carry it through. This building strikes me as being more intense and enveloping as any big screen surround sound and 3D cinema or outdoor rock concert. Very very different from St Andrews in the city centre or the Catholic Cathedral a few yards up the road from St Peters in Stonehouse. If you are drawn to the high church Anglo-Catholicism as practiced here or simply want to look at a beautiful functional modern interior then come and look at this place.
