The Bombed-Out Church

Liverpudlians always know St. Luke‘s as the bombed-out church.

Urban Strawberry Lunch now use the church as an event space, with music, films and other events.

When I go to Liverpool, I always walk up past St. Luke’s and pay my respects to all those who died in the Second World War.
