Near the Eaton Centre in Toronto is an unlikely square, old buildings surrounded by modern architecture. This is Trinity Square, a quiet oasis in the city. There are three buildings here dating back to the 19th century, and the centrepiece is the Anglican Church of the Holy Trinity. I was in the area anyway on Christmas Eve, so it seemed fitting to stop in.
The church is well known for its work in social justice and community outreach. It's also known for being a cultural hub for music performance. The Cowboy Junkies recorded two albums here (if you have no idea who they are, just check them out on Youtube; they're an outstanding music act).
Inside, the sanctuary lets in a good deal of light during the day, and can be visited by the passerby at most times.
The stained glass windows over the altar fit in perfectly with the surroundings.
The interior of the sanctuary is old fashioned, fitting with the building itself... and surrounded by modernity.
