Former church for sale as redevelopment project subject to the granting of relevant planning permissions

Situated in a residential area close to local facilities, such as a primary school, church and social club with amenities such as a McColls, public house and medical centre further afield.

The former church was built in 1925 as a result of the expansion of the St. Helens population to the West. The church was in use for forty years until the construction of the new St. Theresa of Avila in 1965 upon which it became the Parish Hall.

The former church is a modest building constructed of traditional brick under pitched slate roof. Entrance is taken to the North of the building from Devon Street via the entrance vestibule with access ramp leading through wide double doors. From here a central lobby provides access to the main hall, separate male and female toilets along with storage cupboards and stair access to the gallery/organ loft.

The main hall is a long room with plenty of large windows supplemented by ample strip-lighting throughout. A suspended ceiling has been installed over the entire main hall which is in need of general repair. Access to the original gallery/organ loft is taken via stairs from the lobby which provides views of the original roof structure along with the suspended ceiling and associated insulation. There is a loft hatch from here which provides access to the cavity above the original plaster ceiling.

Moving back through to the main hall, a large bar area is located to the rear along with a well equipped kitchen with store room. Beneath the kitchen is a small cellar area which is accessed via an external staircase off Exeter street. To the right of the bar is a further store with disabled toilet and further storage space.

Please note that the Vendors will impose a restriction on the Title and prevent the property being used for non-Christian worship or any other purpose contrary to the doctrine or moral teaching of the Catholic Church. The building cannot retain or use the name of the Parish in its new title.
