Christ Church Cathedral is at one of Vancouver's busiest intersections. It is a small stone cathedral towered by the Hotel Vancouver, Park Place, the Fairmont Hotel and the Bental Centre. That's probably why I find it so attractively charming. Its scale reminds me of the time when this Church was in the centre of a residential community in a growing... More

We were on our way to the port for an Alaskan cruise. We stopped for morning worship and eucharist. Though the congregation has exited the cathedral during major renovations, hey were a hearty, joyous, welcoming group. It can be tough to make a hotel ballroom into a place of fellowship and worship, but they did it - and apparently DO... More

This cathedral is situated in the heart of Vancouver central. It carries a sense of peace and calm in a bustling city. The interior is beautiful with magnificent stained glass windows and warm woodwork. Entrance is free.

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. Each window really varies in what time they come from (keeping in mind that the city itself is only 127 years old) and it's interesting to watch the transition. Observe... More

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.
