Saxon Street (V7), Central Milton Keynes, MK9 2ES
The Church of Christ of the Cornerstone is Britain's first purpose-built ecumenical city church.
The church is 101 feet high while the cross rises a further 18 feet making it the highest point in Milton Keynes. The Dome is 66 feet in diameter and nearly 40 foot high. It is half the size of the famous dome at St Pauls Cathedral in London.
The building sits on a raised plinth, the dome is finished in lead, the floors are oak and it has marbled columns. It has the unusual feature of a cascade of water over a granite wall in the baptistry. Untraditionally the altar faces south instead of east. The church has fine acoustics and is a beautiful setting to hear live music.
Principally it is a place of worship but it is also a centre for concerts, recitals, exhibitions and drama in Milton Keynes.
