From wikipedia

St Luke's Church, Liverpool, is a former Anglican parish church, which is now a ruin. It stands on the corner of Berry Street and Leece Street, looking down the length of Bold Street, Liverpool, Merseyside, England. The church was built between 1811 and 1832, and was designed by John Foster, senior and John Foster, junior, father and son who were successive surveyors for the municipal Corporation of Liverpool. In addition to being a parish church, it was also intended to be used as a venue for ceremonial worship by the Corporation, and as a concert hall. It was badly damaged during the Liverpool Blitz in 1941, and remains as a roofless shell. It now stands as a memorial to those who were lost in the war, and is also a venue for exhibitions and events. The church, and the surrounding walls, gates and railings are designated by English Heritage as Grade II* listed buildings.

My thoughs:
The "bombed church" is not an "empty church sell" for Liverpool. It is a place where cultural events happen all year around. From concerts to open air cinema screening old classic movies.
It is there to remind people in Liverpool the bombings.

For this last round or Skyropolis my team realeses books to churches. In this case, this is more than a church. It is a symbol of peace.
