Right in the middle of downtown, this cathedral is hard to miss. Worth a stop for a few pics as you walk past. It may even be possible to go inside.

The Cathedral does not make a pretence from the outside, but inside it is very attractive - where wood and marble mixes. Stained-glass windows are magnificent. Made note, it was possible to visit it in broad daylight contrary to many of the other churches through the country, what is everything in its honor.

I loved going in there when there were almost next to no people there. It gave me the opportunity to look at each stained glass window individually and appreciate it.

Christchurch Cathedral in downtown Vancouver is represents a lovely mix of old world (especially the stone facade of the exterior and stained glass windows) and the new world with its wood beams and open interior. It may lack the ornate beauty of the great cathedrals of Europe, but this is still a lovely and functioning place of worship.

We attended Morning Worship and felt very at home from the moment we walked in. Choral music was wonderful and excellent sermon and refreshments afterwards. Thank you.

Lovely old cathedral is worth a visit for its architecture and stained glass. But we went for the brief 9:30 evening Compline service with Gregorian chant and it was sublime.

We loved the tour of the church so much history and what a beautiful calming church with lots of glass in the heart of a very busy city. Come and enjoy some quiet time in the church! If this review was helpful please let me know...
