St Anne’s Church Stanley

Between the bus station and Stanley Market lies the Catholic Church of St Anne’s. It’s a place I have often visited and in April this year I walked into this beautiful church.

The way in or entrance, is through a door on the left of the nave, which is  close to the offices, so you are unaware of the peace to be found as you enter the nave.

The artwork above the altar is stunning, set against a backdrop of  cobalt blue.

Once I had sat down and given myself time for the heat to leave my body it was a real joy to spend time in this place once again, and bring all that lies heavily on my shoulders.

I returned to the apartment on the red double decker no 6X bus, feeling refreshed and happy, or should that mean blessed?
