Community impact

The historical value of Stone Church is self-evident. One look inside brings wonder to those who daily depend on its role in the community for free laundry, drop-ins, cooking and English classes, programs for seniors, space to showcase the arts, youth services and much more. However, everyone must first enter through the front door at the base of the impressive tower. The $50,000 prize to stabilize the tower ensures that this iconic community building can be entered for years to come. Repairing instead of rebuilding also saves some 130,000 kg in carbon. This is equivalent to 5,105 trash bags recycled or 2000 tree seedlings grown for 10 years.

Stone church a une grande valeur – dans un sens historique mais aussi dans son action communautaire. Tous les jours nous offrons des services importantes. Tout le monde qui entre dans l’église entre par la porte à la base de la tour. Obtenir le prix de $50 000 pour stabiliser notre tour assure que nous pouvions ouvrir nos portes pour des d’années à venir.

About this place

St. John’s (Stone) church is the oldest church building in Saint John. Built in 1824 it will soon celebrate its 200th anniversary. One of the best examples in Canada of the Romantic Gothic Revival Style, its architecture is part of our national heritage. The church was built because there was nowhere for poor members of the community to worship. The modernized interior now free from pews, still allows Stone church to serve a diverse, marginalized community. Whether homeless, newcomer or tourist, all stand in awe of classic stained glass augmented by intricate woodwork and furnishings.

St. John’s (Stone) Church est la plus vieille église à Saint Jean. Construite en 1824 elle va bientôt fêter ces 200 ans! L’un des meilleurs examples du style d’architecture nèo-gothique romantique, Stone Church fait partie de notre patrimoine nationale. L’église a toujours eu une relation importante avez les pauvres et les gens en marge de la société. C’est bien beau de pouvoir donner accès à notre lieu d’heritage aux membres de la communauté qui d’habitude ne voient pas ce genre de site tous les jours.
