Liverpool, Christ Church Waterloo
Liverpool, Christ Church Waterloo
A huge late Victorian church in the Waterloo district of Liverpool, Christ Church's most distinctive feature is its tall tower, built of pinkish sandstone. The tower was for many years a landmark for sailors navigating the Mersey.
The church was damaged in WWII but has now been rescued from years of dereliction. The interior is spacious and full of light from two great windows, one at each end. The stained glass of the west end pictures the twelve Apostles, while the great east window depicts Christ with a variety of Biblical figures and angels. The stained glass is the work of Shrigley and Hunt, one of the foremost manufacturers of ecclesiastical glass in the late 19th century.

Christ's Church is not used for regular worship but has become a multi-purpose venue for performances and  exhibitions. It is now in the capable hands of the Churches Conservation Trust.
