Ford – Holy Spirit

Poulsom Drive, Ford, Liverpool 30

The   church   building   is   a   functional   modern   structure   of   limited architectural interest.

The parish was formed in 1953. The first  church  contained  a notable mosaic  by George Mayer-Martin, who lived and practised in the Liverpool area. The present church was built in about 1987.

A  simple building with walls  faced  in red brick laid  in stretcher  bond  and  roof- coverings  of concrete  tiles.  The  church  consists  of  a single  range  under  a  broad pitched roof, with large windows at the liturgical east and west ends. Along the ridge of the roof is an upstand with gables at each end and in the centre of each long side. The roof sweeps down low almost to head height on the longer sides and the walls are windowless. The main entrances are contained in a transeptal projection in the centre of one side. The detailing throughout is slightly coarse. Interior not inspected.
