This is St. Alban's Anglican Church in Sandy Hill, a short walk away from the church I showed you yesterday. Dating back to the 1860s, it is in the Gothic revival style, courtesy of the architect Thomas Fuller, who designed the Parliament buildings as well (though his original Centre Block later met a bad end in the 1916 fire). Sir John A. Macdonald, our first prime minister, attended here regularly, and his family's pew is still marked in the sanctuary.
Today the church is socially progressive and active in the community, including work with the homeless, refugee sponsoring, and other ventures. Because of some of those ventures, they've recently added what are essentially pods into the sanctuary for office space, carefully working with heritage officials to find the right balance.
This plaque caught my eye in the sanctuary- just for that name. Horatio Asprey Wicksteed. Now that's a name of names.
The stained glass also caught my eye- particularly the last one. It looks at a distance like a Galahad knight in armour window, and you think for a moment that it's a memorial to a fallen soldier, but it's in memory of a boy who died at twelve.
