..and the oldest surviving building in Halifax, being built just after the foundation of the city in 1749. Beautifully kept inside with amazing stained glass windows, and the most amazing organ, with pipes in the colour of the Nova Scotia flag!

Oldest church and building in Halifax. Make a donation and the volunteers inside are happy to show you around and share the history of the church. Gorgeous windows and the historic Halifax Explosion priest silhouette window (ask to see it!) Just loved our visit here.
