Breaking with the 19th century’s gothic and decorative traditions, Sheffield's period of post-war development saw modernism adopted by churches that were established to serve the growing communities of new-build estates. These striking, bold and unexpectedly beautiful new churches focused on democratising their halls, emphasising open-ness, natural light and unique angles, and demystifying previously rarefied spaces. Modernist Churches of Sheffield maps out nine such churches.
