THE Bridge Church, formerly St Luke's, in Headless Cross, is opening its doors to visitors.

The beautiful Victorian church will be open on Thursdays from 10am-noonand 2-4pm when everyone is welcome to drop in, enjoy the peaceful atmosphere, light a candle for a loved, or simply sit quietly.

As well as the serene atmosphere, visitors can enjoy the beautifully decorated interior which is by the famous Victorian architect Frederick Preedy.

There are paintings of saints and angels, and it is also particularly unusual as it has the in having the signs of the zodiac painted around the chancel roof.

During the open mornings, refreshments are available next door in the cafe in St Luke's Memorial Hall.

The Rev Jo Musson said: "We hope local people and visitors from further afield will take the opportunity to come inside and discover our beautiful church.

“Whether you're interested in the architecture or the stained glass, or just want some time out, there is something quite unique about sitting quietly in a church, a chance to sit and reflect on life, and where better than The Bridge?

“It might look plain and ordinary from the outside but come inside and you will discover what must be the most beautiful church in Redditch."
