Church with histories behind
Oct 2019
The Trinity Church has been restored to the present state including the English Coat of Arms. The stained glass windows inside the Church were attractive while the other areas were well maintained. Worth for visit.

Historic Church Worth A Visit
Oct 2019
This is a beautiful church which has been restored to its original beautiful state. Talked to a curator who pointed out the English Coat of Arms which had been removed during the Revolution and restored.

Paying tribute to the United Empire Loyalists
Sep 2019
The history of a place is what appeals to me; I found it here. Inside, flags (assume these to be regimental and relate to British military influence) from the New Brunswick military units hang in the church and Queen Victoria's statue makes its home here. The Loyalists (referred to in St. John as "United Empire" Loyalists) began church construction in 1791.

The next church (this church) was built after the 1877 fire. Construction began in 1879. It sits high on the plot of land and, at 200 feet in height, can be seen from most of Uptown St. John (at least the steeples are visible). Although hard to see, there is a 6 foot long fish on the weather vane on top of the main steeple.

It is a Gothic Revival treasure with the typical turreted pinnacles and large steeple; one of those Public Art Salmon sculptures is located at the bottom of the stairs. It is finely patterned in a brocade-looking motif. No distracting color, just detailed pattern.

Charlotte Street is where this lovely senior citizen is located. That street has many very old, historical buildings on it and made for a great walk around Uptown. At this time, the church (which bills itself as "The Loyalist Church") is seeking community donations to help save the steeple.

Inside, a stained glass window dedicated to Saint Mathias has a little plaque; it says the ax he holds represents how he was killed (axed to death). He was chosen by the apostles to replace Judas after the betrayal of Jesus.

The grounds are exceptionally well-maintained. The bushes and flowers set this apart from others.

Church full of history
Sep 2019
This is a church that has a lot of history. Very old and brought back many memories of how churches were years ago. Many steps in front to climb.

This was lovely church with beautiful stained glass windows and a lot of history as a place of worship . There is a great printed guide to walk you through out the church in both English and French. There is not a cost but donations to upkeep are welcomed.

Stolen from Boston

You really do have to stop in here, if only to see the purloined crest of King George III, which accompanied the Loyalists from the Boston Statehouse to a more welcomed resting place in Trinity Church.
