St Augustine’s is the Catholic Church for the Parish and also the Chaplaincy for Manchester Metropolitan University within the All Saints Campus on Grosvenor Street, Manchester. This sanctuary of repose, away from the busy street, includes a massive and dramatic ceramic relief sculpture ‘Christ in Glory’ by Robert Brumby. The internal atmosphere of the church is modified by the changes in light cast through the stained glass windows. The windows are a colourful and random abstract design and ascend the full height of the walls between the structural bays. The pieces of coloured glass are suspended in concrete and designed by the French artist, Pierre Fourmaintraux
St Augustine's was designed by the founder of our practice Desmond Williams, and Achieved Grade II Listed status in November 2007.
