St. Paul's is Halifax's oldest building, its first place of worship, and remains central to the civic life of the city after more than 250 years on the Grand Parade.
St. Paul's figures prominently in the city's long relationship with the British royal family, and has played an important role in key events in Halifax history, from the town's founding to the sinking of the Titanic, the 1917 Explosion, and the immense tragedies of two world wars. Through it all the church has served as a place of worship and a source of outreach into the broader community. The building itself is fascinating, with many fine architectural features and beautiful furnishings. All these elements of St. Paul's history are explored in this book.
Illustrated with a wide selection of historical and modern visualsmany in full colourSt. Paul's in the Grand Parade is a vivid reflection on one of the country's most historic places of worship.
