Roman Catholic Church of St Michael and All Angels, Woodchurch - Wirral

Modern church constructed in 1965 by RIBA Gold Medal winning architect Richard O'Mahony. Located on the axial road through the Woodchurch housing estate. The design is dominated by the tall tent-like metal clad roof which springs from the corners of the worship area and rises to 83 feet above the sanctuary floor. The 50 year old roof is in need of renewal and the interior is suffering from water ingress. A phase of roof repairs is currently underway, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund's Grant for Places of Worship scheme.
