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.

A place for a thoughts and to get into a peaceful mind. Don't forget to light a candle for someone you like or miss.

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...

The Christ Church Cathedral in Vancouver is well worth a stop. It's the oldest standing church in Vancouver, standing since 1888. That's a long time. The church is very pretty. We've certainly been to more visually impressive cathedrals around the world, but this one has some of the best stained glass windows we've seen. They are incredibly beautiful and certainly... More

Be sure to come in and take a service on Sunday if you're living nearby. The church is splendid. And the pastors and staffs are very nice.

We came across the Cathedral while walking down Burrard Street from our hotel down to the harbour. A beautiful old (by Vancouver standards) building in the middle of all the skyscrapers! So peaceful inside and beautifully kept. We had a nice conversation with the gentleman sitting just inside on 'reception'. There is no charge but donations are very welcome! We... More

This is a beautiful Anglican church and it is worth visiting. Other than the gentleman who was at a reception desk when we entered and who provided information about the church, and two other visitors, we were the only people in the cathedral. The church has a beautiful wood ceiling and a number of stained glass windows. Photographs are permitted.... More
