Pensby – Holy Family

Pensby Road, Pensby, Wirral, Cheshire CH61

A modest, recently-constructed church providing a flexible space.

A new parish was established in Pensby in 1968. At first Mass was said in the Thingwall Methodist Church. By 1972 the Ladymount Primary School in Portal Road was being used. The church in Pensby Road was designed by David Ireland and built in 1999.

The church is a modest building consisting of a flexible worship space with a narthex and generous sacristy space. It is low and spreading, with a main roof and subsidiary gables. The walls are of red brick, with a concrete tiled roof. The pitched roof structure is exposed internally and the ceiling is clad in pine boarding. The sanctuary is illuminated by a concealed lantern, casting light onto the tabernacle which is placed on a marble shelf behind the altar. Panels of stained glass were introduced from a Methodist church in Southport.
