I have dropped in to Knox church twice over the years and been lucky enough to have the whole Labrynth all to myself. It is truly a spiritually enlightening experience when you need direction!

This is a beautiful old (by Western Canadian standards) church. Its small congregation is big on living its faith through community outreach. In addition, Knox hosts many cultural events. The accoustics are surprisingly good.

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.

Knox is a COMPLETELY inclusive church, welcoming all regardless of race, religion or sexual/gender identity. Knox has Calgary’s best pipe organ, many prefer it to the one at the Jack Singer Concert Hall. With its beautiful sanctuary, historic stained glass windows and marvellous acoustics, Knox...More

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
