This is a beautiful building, inside and out. The stained-glass windows are spectacular (a printed, colourful guide is available). We attended a Bach Calgary Choir concert. The acoustics were fabulous. We intend to return.

I went on Christmas Eve and was treated to outstanding music. The church is old but well maintained. It is a heritage building.

This wonderful church has a nice inlaid labyrinth to walk -it's for meditation and coming into yourself. Look it up. They do a lot of cool events here too. Lovely space. Uncomfortable pews.

Lots of interesting things happen at this location so don't worry if you miss the choir concert season. The church is lovely. The acoustics outstanding but the social justice program that serves the community is really quite outstanding as well. If you are just going...More

I have been to Knox United for church services as well as many concerts. The beautiful stained glass windows and high ceilings make this one of my favourite places in the city.
