St. Paul’s on-site services of worship are suspended.

And our building and parish office are not open.

But St. Paul’s is very much alive in its weekly worship, and in its life and mission.

You may contact us through this site by comment, phone, or email.

Worship With Us

For more than 12,000 Sundays worshippers have gathered here to celebrate Christ’s death and resurrection, to read God’s word and to hear it preached from the pulpit, to bring before Him the needs of the world and to offer Him humble thanks for his goodness.

St. Paul’s is the oldest building in Halifax and the oldest existing Anglican place of worship in Canada. Founded by proclamation of King George II in 1749, the building was erected in the summer of 1750.

A sanctuary is a place of refuge from danger, and many have entered St. Paul’s Church with that in mind since the mid-eighteenth century. In its early days the most obviously vulnerable have sought refuge, or been carried to it, during catastrophes—the injured, the dying, the dead.
