This is a wonderful old church in the heart of downtown Vancouver. Both the outside and inside are in wonderful condition after an extensive remodel. The interior vaulted ceiling is all made from locally sourced spruce and fir many many years ago.

We could have missed this little gem. It looks like any smallish church from the outside but is beautiful inside. Understated. Great stained glass and lovely fabric art. Chatted with very friendly cleric. Worth a spare half hour- just up Burrard St from the waterfront.

We walked from our hotel over to this church in downtown Vancouver for a morning service. The church service was very nice, open to everyone. The church is beautiful and everyone was nice. The organ is very good.
