Church Tourist Spot
Visit St. John's Anglican Church, Canada’s second oldest church of English origin. Constructed in 1753 in the carpenter gothic architectural style, the church's exterior consists of almost all white brick walls, with black accents outlining the doors, windows, central bell tower, and spires. During 2001 the church suffered from a blaze, but thankfully it has since been fully restored. Inside, find a wooden, pyramid-shaped roof sheltering wooden pews, which survived the fire. Stained glass windows, which allow natural light to fill the interior, also survived the 2001 inferno.

  • Admissions is by donation so I would say if worth stopping in for a couple of dollars. After the fire the church was resorted with the help of some local artists. They did a really wonderful job resto...  more »
  • This is a must see in Lunenburg. The church suffered a horrible fire a few years back, but you would not know it to look at it. It is steeped in the rich history of this town and the story of its rest...  more »
  • Despite a terrible fire, this Heritage structure has been restored and preserved for the future. As an UNESCO community Lundberg and it's residents have done a wonderful job.  more »

  • Gorgeous church inside and out. Unique exterior, with a gothic style tower, a little green space outside with a monument and historic Jessen Bell, and a nearby geocache! Beautiful rich interior. Rebuilt after a fire in 2001
  • Those volunteers(?) are very helpful to provide information. The church was rebuilt after a recent fire, not authentic. However , a good drop by in the south part of Nova Scotia crazy car trip.
  • One of must-see churches in Canada. Spectacular and memorable!
  • Beautiful and historic. One of the oldest Anglican churches in the new world.
  • Beautiful church that features 2 Sunday services and a very friendly lady who told us all about the church's history and it's rebuilding.
