We came across this church by chance and were so glad we stopped in. The history of the Covenanters is fascinating and there is written history available to take away. The building has been preserved and is in excellent condition. A very peaceful and thoughtful stop on our tour of the Valley.

This church is well worth visiting. It is a very serene quiet place of contemplation. The pulpit is very high, so the minister can see both the balcony and below.

We happened by this old church in Wolfville while just out touring around and something about it caught our attention so we decided to drop in. It's been beautifully maintained over the years and still houses an old pump organ and the piping that was used to heat the church back in it's early days. A very interesting find, for... More

We've spent many a Christmas Eve here at the 'midnight' (starts around 11pm) service. Beautiful church, quiet and peaceful. The highlight of the Christmas Eve service for us was always a solo of O Holy Night, sung by Stephen McClare (Canadian Opera Company). I have fond memories of sitting up in the balcony, or downstairs near the heat of the... More

The drive out to the church is so lovely, and the building has great character. Would be made better by taking in a service at the church, to really get a sense of the place.

Although we did not enter the church, we admired the external design and grounds. A lovely setting., and well worth a visit.

This is an interesting church that is built in a simplistic, symmetrical style. It does not have stained glass windows or ornate woodwork, but it is representative of the early 1800s when it was built. There is also a cemetery on site.

The Old Covenanter Church in Grand Pre is very historic, with its box pews and high pulpit with sounding board overhead. It was used for the United Church until ,I think, the '70's or 80's. Since then it has been open to the public as a historic place. The cemetery attached has very old tombstones for those interested in historical... More

My perspective of this wonderful church is as a place of worship as well as a historic sight. For both reasons it is very worthy of a visit. Cuddled up with my husband on the latter part of Christmas Eve in this church, singing and sharing fellowship with friends and friends-I-had-not-yet-met always reminds me that although I live 4300 kms....
