One of the oldest churches in Vancouver, but by European standards it's small and not special. The acoustics are good and concerts are often held there.

Beautiful interior unusual in that it is constructed primarily of wood. I especially loved the modern Tree of Life stained glass windows, which portrays salmon swimming, trees, river, and sky.

The history of the church's financial woes and how they were overcome is also very interesting. We learned about this history from our fantastic tour guide (see also my review of the Tour Guys).

And on top of that, you can combine your visit with lunch at the JapaDog hot dog stand nearby!

This is a gorgeous old church with lots of beautiful stained glass and woodwork. The accustics are amazing so we enjoyed an outstanding musical event featuring a well known violinist from LA and her piano accompanist.
Even if there is not a concert to enjoy, this church is well worth a visit!!

The atmosphere is lovely. One of the oldest churches in Vancouver, set among tall highrises. It's nice to visit for special concerts given during December. It's located right across from the Burrard Skytrain so it's very easy to get to.

We actually went here twice. First on Sunday evening (9:00 pm, I think) for their Gregorian Chant service, which was very special. Then the next day we went on a walking tour of downtown Vancouver, and this was one of the stops. It was great to be able to go in during the day, and take some pictures (which I couldn't do during the evening service, obviously!) It's a beautiful building, and getting some extra information from the tour group leader made it more meaningful.
