    I never put two and two together that it was originally part of the church
    I can't quite remember the church, but vaguely aware that there was one located somewhere by there.

    I'm wondering now where the old cinema fitted in near to that church . . . there was a cinema right by there wasn't there ??

    Not quite Ged, the cinema is the smaller building just to the left. The Everton Picture Palace.

    Richmond Baptist on Breck rd has been empty and neglected for a long time. It's now up for sale. I can't see anyone taking over those premises for anything as it is such a huge place. It's in a very poor state of neglect and I wouldn't be surprised if it eventually gets demolished.

    I always think they were very optimistic,when it came to projected congregation size,even then,as there are/were, so many of these church's around,with none!!

    Great pic' Joe,fantastic Byzantine style architecture,possibly connected with St.Philip Neri's background? Isn't this used for another purpose,now? And I always wondered if those odd bits/pillars were remnants of another building!

    The church was built in 1920,the sculpture on the front about 1945 by Tom Murphy, not the Tom Murphy thats currently doing local work now.
    Has it closed now ?
    It was the university chaplaincy with tea and biscuits served to the students after mass on sundays.

    Whether one is religious and a believer or not, I find the architecture of these buildings, the scale, smell, aura and biblical statues and paintings fantastic.

    To echo what Ged has said - and I'm not a believer - I love these buildings, I love the scale and architecture of them.
    St. Monica's in Bootle is one of my favourites - Art Deco at it's best!
    I'll try and photograph some this week myself.
    Somebody asked what is on the site of Christ Church (Sedgemoor Road) in Norris Green. It's a new development of houses finished around Christmas time and called Christ Church Close.
