St Philip's with St Stephen review Rate it

St Philip's, a neoclassical Anglican church dating back to the 1820s, is one of a handful of 19th-century buildings to survive the neglect faced by many of its Chapel Street neighbours. Built by Robert Smirke (who also designed the British Museum in London), the church is distinctive thanks to a colonnaded entrance topped by a perpendicular bell tower. And, under the stewardship of the Reverend Andy Salmon, this is one forward-thinking place of worship.

As at the nearby Sacred Trinity, regular concerts are held here (particularly during music festivals Sounds from the Other City and Un-convention), ranging from genre-defying Florence and the Machine to the slightly more sedate BBC Philharmonic Orchestra.
