CHURCH TO OPEN AFTER MAKEOVER.

A HISTORIC Liverpool church will reopen for Easter after an interior makeover so the congregation can experience it in "new and exciting ways".

The Grade II*- listed St Dunstan's Church, in Toxteth, will re-open on April 17, with a new-look interior, overseen by renowned church architecture advisor Richard Giles.

St Dunstan's finished this first phase of its reordering so everyone can move around the central space instead of watching services led from the front.

A temporary altar and lectern were placed in the centre of the space and will be later made permanent.

The newly-cleaned font will be surrounded by colourchanging theatre-style lighting.

The first baptism in the new space will take place there on Easter Sunday.

St Dunstan's was built in 1886-8.
