Knox Presbyterian Church was first established in 1845 at another location in the city. Its current church location dates to the beginning of the 1930s. The church combines aspects of English Gothic and Norman styles of architecture, and neighbours City Hall on Elgin Street.
During my Doors Open visit, I chatted with one of the congregation members, who oversees the gardens outside around the church and its adjoining hall. This pear tree was gifted by the city last year for the 150th anniversary of the country.
Inside, the sanctuary is unadorned but beautiful, with columns and two sets of stained glass windows at either end, done by the same artist years apart.
Plaques note the service of congregation members in two world wars.
The carvings on this font caught my eye.
As did the pulpit. I will have more from inside the church tomorrow.
