"A place of prayer for all"
Feb. 2020 • Couples
A magnificent building, with detailed woodwork, hand crafted lead glass windows, and an oasis of quiet beside the noise of busy city streets, and dwarfed by quickly assembled homogenous skyscrapers.

Memorials to those who died in war, and long term contibutors to the well being of this church.

Old Church surrounded by skyscrapers
Dec. 2019
St Andrew’s Church is located more or less in the Entertainment district in downtown Toronto. Surrounded by a plethora of skyscrapers it stands out and is easily noticeable. What a I liked was that it is a very cozy church with the balcony hanging very low over the pews. Very nice stop in busy downtown Toronto.

Fairy tale building surrounded by skyscrapers
Dec. 2019
This nice small church is surrounded by skyscrapers and it looks like a fairy tale building among all those modern glass buildings. I was there during Christmas holiday, so there was a Christmas tree inside and the interior was beautifuly decorated. It is a nice stop if you are in the area.

Really interesting
Jan. 2020
Its an unusual church in that you are greeted with a low ceiling to the left & right hand sides as you enter and the stained glass windows are smaller than usual and seem to abruptly end at this low ceiling.

Walking into the centre of the church another unusual feature is the 2-3 rows of pews in the stalls on a floor above the left and right sides. It makes for a much more intimate atmosphere. We enjoyed looking round.

A Beautiful Church, Outside and Inside
Aug. 2019
From an architectural and historical standpoint St. Andrews Church is well worth a visit if you're in the area. As you enter from King Street you'll find a table with guide sheets you can borrow explaining points of interest in the main church, which mostly are the woodwork and design, the pipe organ, and the stained glass windows. You are welcome to walk around and take pictures whenever services are not in progress. In the basement is the 48th Highlanders Museum, which is also well worth visiting (look for the sign at the top of the stairs).

Such a beautiful church
May 2019 • Couples
Surrounded by city skyscrapers this historic pretty church really stands out, one of my favorites. I was recently downtown for a play and had to walk from parking to the venue, the way they have lit up this church at night makes it appear to be an oasis in a jungle of glass and steel.

Romanesque Revival
Feb. 2019 • Couples
We had not been in St Andrew's for 35 years when we went to a concert by the Mendelssohn Choir last night. It is a fine example of Romanesque Revival architecture, and the acoustics are good. There is a small museum in the basement that deals with the history of the 48th Highlanders, the regiment that has been associated with the church since 1891. Unfortunately it isn't open in the evening, and I must go back to visit it.

This church is located off St. Andrews Metro station. It is a beautiful church with great architecture. You may stop by on your way to CN Tower.

Lovely stone building in the middle of the city
Sep. 2018 • Solo
Amongst all the tall glass buildings, you suddenly come across this great bright stone building - and surprisingly it’s flying the national flag of Scotland. It’s a great-looking building and nice for us Scots to see a taste of home.

A wee taste of Scotland
Sep. 2018 • Couples
Many is the time I stopped here for a quiet contemplative moment. It's open most days and they have a sign board on the street inviting people in. They have a residence as well as a museum and an active meal program for the homeless. There are no grand murals but nonetheless, it's a genuine reminder of a kirk on the high street back home, and a break from the busy downtown hubub.
