We were in Chicago on the first Sunday of Lent and being a presbyterian decied to attend the 9:30 service at 4th Presbyterian. The service, including the visiting choir from Muskegum University and the sermon were very meaningful. The people we met were very welcoming and friendly.

SUch a beautiful old church in the midst of contemporary sky scrapers. Our choir sang here as part of the Friday Performance Series and it was an amazing experience. Beautiful interiors for photography if you have a wide angle and a very fast lens.

I am staying around the corner and just happened into the Church. I was totally unprepared to see that the breathtaking wooden ceiling looks like the ribs of an inverted ship. The stained glass windows are absolutely exquisite. I felt free to just sit and absorb all this. The Gothic revival style church looks more like a cathedral. And it... More

A cold morning on Michigan Avenue after a good breakfast and a long walk -- time to be alone for reflection. The sanctuary of Fourth Presbyterian Church was open for visitors in need of a quiet place. Its magnificent arched windows, hanging chandeliers, high ceiling and beautiful pulpit and table were backdrops for individual prayer and meditation. The information about... More

Wow. Heavenly. Sit in a pew and just look at everything. And take a million pictures. The stained glass is exquisite, and the organ pipes are enormous!

Early on Christmas Eve, we attended the Children's Pageant and were warmly welcomed by the regular parishioners. The church was packed, the lighting of the angels near the ceiling dramatic, the music lovely, and the children's participation utterly delightful, including great costumes and boisterous singing from the children's choir. Thank you to all of the church regulars and officiants.

This church is absolutely beautiful. You can walk in so long as there is no service going on (unless you are staying for service of course). The architecture of this church is nothing short of amazing. Definitely a place for any age to see

We were in the area when we spotted this church. Wife wanted to take a look. It was a wonderful surprise. Really beautiful church and courtyard. Also they had a Gallery Hall(It was a Shakespeare inspired exhibit.) Stick around and take some pictures.

Stop in to 4th Presbyterian Church for a nice respite during your shopping trip to North Michigan Avenue. Historically relevant and gorgeous architecture.

Staying in Magnificent Mile

Neighbourhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
