Kerrisdale Presbyterian Church: a beautifully adorned space
Designed by renowned architect J. Francis Brown, this space is truly special. The sanctuary is adorned with beautiful stained-glass windows that depict biblical scenes and are among the most striking features of the building. The church also has a one-of-a-kind modern asymmetrical pipe organ, which adds to the charm and atmosphere of the church, making it the perfect location for intimate Candlelight concerts.
Christ Church: a divine venue with excellent acoustics
This architecturally significant and historic building is known for its features and stunning beauty. Built in Gothic Revival style in 1894, with soaring spires and high vaulted ceilings and large open space provide excellent acoustics, which really make it one of the best concert halls in Vancouver. It’s located in the heart of downtown Vancouver, so it’s easily accessible to locals and visitors alike. Praise the music while admiring the heavenly surrounds of Christ Church, as they’re bathed in candlelight.
Holy Trinity Cathedral: a Gothic Revival gem
Another beautiful example of Gothic Revival architecture, this cathedral has some special features, nonetheless. Located in New Westminster, this space is situated near many other historic and cultural attractions, including the New Westminster Museum and Archives and the River Market.

Its intricate stone carvings and beautiful spires, combined with live classical performances under the flickering glow of candles, radiate an aura of divinity.
