I have shown you St. Peter's Lutheran Church during my series on the Tulip Festival. It is one of two churches here on Cathedral Hill, on the west side of the downtown core. This present incarnation of the church dates back to 1952, but there was a previous location elsewhere downtown. It's designed in the English Gothic style, and features a Casavant organ inside.
For whatever reason, shots of the sanctuary itself didn't come out properly, but these stained glass windows worked. The first is one of several inside, depicting Biblical scenes.
The second features historical figures from the Lutheran church in Canada, as well as landmarks and references to Lutheran work done here.
And this last window is dedicated to music; Martin Luther is flanked by the composers George Handel and Johann Sebastian Bach, both of whom composed extensive sacred music. Luther is surrounded by key aspects of his own history, while Bach and Handel have elements of music incorporated into the glass around them.
The neighbouring church on the hill is Christ Church Cathedral, an Anglican congregation. The current church dates back to the 1870s, though the congregation's roots stretch back to 1832.
It's also in the English Gothic style.
The high altar inside the sanctuary is impressive.
More from inside Christ Church tomorrow. I'm linking this today to Inspired Sunday. Click on that link for other blogs posting places of religious significance.
