This Victorian Gothic church is magnificent. I only wished I could have gone inside to see the interior, but as everyone knows, churches are no longer open to the public except on Sundays and special events. (In Europe, most of the well-known cathedrals and churches are open for viewing). Interesting fact: The bell tower and steeple is 210 feet tall and topped by a 6-ft long wood gilt fish weathervane. The fish was an early symbol for Christianity (and not a symbol of fishing in Saint John, which is what most people would probably think).

I stumbled upon this historic and beautiful church today on our cruise ship docking. We walked through the front doors however they were holding some sort of class or activity inside and therefore we did not coincide. Very beautiful grounds and building

This beautiful old church is a must see. Apprectiating the history and time period when this was built makes it even more special.

The Trinity Church has been restored to the present state including the English Coat of Arms. The stained glass windows inside the Church were attractive while the other areas were well maintained. Worth for visit.

This is a beautiful church which has been restored to its original beautiful state. Talked to a curator who pointed out the English Coat of Arms which had been removed during the Revolution and restored.

Very peaceful and beautiful church. The stained glass that surrounds the church is definitely a must see if you have time.

The history of a place is what appeals to me; I found it here. Inside, flags (assume these to be regimental and relate to British military influence) from the New Brunswick military units hang in the church and Queen Victoria's statue makes its home here. The Loyalists (referred to in St. John as "United Empire" Loyalists) began church construction in 1791.

The next church (this church) was built after the 1877 fire. Construction began in 1879. It sits high on the plot of land and, at 200 feet in height, can be seen from most of Uptown St. John (at least the steeples are visible). Although hard to see, there is a 6 foot long fish on the weather vane on top of the main steeple.

It is a Gothic Revival treasure with the typical turreted pinnacles and large steeple; one of those Public Art Salmon sculptures is located at the bottom of the stairs. It is finely patterned in a brocade-looking motif. No distracting color, just detailed pattern.

Charlotte Street is where this lovely senior citizen is located. That street has many very old, historical buildings on it and made for a great walk around Uptown. At this time, the church (which bills itself as "The Loyalist Church") is seeking community donations to help save the steeple.

Inside, a stained glass window dedicated to Saint Mathias has a little plaque; it says the ax he holds represents how he was killed (axed to death). He was chosen by the apostles to replace Judas after the betrayal of Jesus.

The grounds are exceptionally well-maintained. The bushes and flowers set this apart from others.

This is a church that has a lot of history. Very old and brought back many memories of how churches were years ago. Many steps in front to climb.
