Introduction

 The Church of the Spirit has been developed in a former flat within a Victorian tenement on the south side of the Nethergate, close to its junction with Marketgait.


Description

From the street  the only visible feature of the church is  the entrance. This comprises a double door, the left one blocked.

The doors are set in a surround of large blocks, alternating, 'long and short', known as a Gibbs Surround. Above the lintel is an impressive voussoir, the stone that supports the structure. 

The door surround is one of several that survive in this part of Nethergate, supporting the view that the plain tenement building was decorated with these strong door surrounds when it was built.
