Popped in here to look at the ceiling again. It is worth just going and sitting in peace at anytime especially when it is raining. You can lose yourself and sit in peace with the wonder

Such an unteresting building. Fabulous guide, a local man who was really made the visit. Local artist Gary Bevans has entirely transformed thus modern building.

Very deceiving from the outside but once inside it’s breathtaking with it’s unique artwork. It’s very hard to believe this labour of love is all the work of one man.

Was everything everyone has said about it! Fascinating talk given by Mel. The artist Gary sounds like a wonderful humble man who has been given a marvelous gift. I'm so glad I spent just over an hour visiting.

Walking up to this church would give you no idea of what to expect inside. From quite a nondescript exterior you walk in and are immediately stunned at the beauty of the ceiling. It is a quite extraordinary piece of work and a true labour...More
