We could have missed this little gem. It looks like any smallish church from the outside but is beautiful inside. Understated. Great stained glass and lovely fabric art. Chatted with very friendly cleric. Worth a spare half hour- just up Burrard St from the waterfront.

One of many historic churches in downtown Vancouver. Christ Church has beautiful acoustics and throughout the year features thoughtful services with choirs.

We walked from our hotel over to this church in downtown Vancouver for a morning service. The church service was very nice, open to everyone. The church is beautiful and everyone was nice. The organ is very good.

I was able to come listen to the mass, but the Choir stole the mass. Lovely to hear a choir sing with heart gave me chills. The building stain glass is like no other.

This is the oldest building in Vancouver - dates back to the end of the 19th century - and has just undergone a major refurbishment. It does not stack up architecturally with the English cathedrals, but is worth the visit. We attended the main Easter...More

Many of my fellow TripAdvisor reviewers have commented on the architecture, design, and stained glass windows. They are all correct - this building, built 1889 (!) is a marvel. But, this is also a place to stop and catch one's breath, to meditate if you...More

It was first pointed out to us on a bus tour, and then today, we walked passed it. So much smaller than the surrounding skyscrapers, it is pretty and picturesque. Our friends decided we should have a look inside, but on opening the door, a...More

Very nice stained glass windows and a large organ are two of the attractions here. A nice place to sit and reflect on life. The restoration was painstakingly done and really is impressive.
