Creator God,

from you every family in heaven and earth takes its name.

You have rooted and grounded us

in your covenant love,

and empowered us by your Spirit

to speak the truth in love,

and to walk in your way towards justice and wholeness.

Mercifully grant that your people,

journeying together in partnership,

may be strengthened and guided

to help one another to grow into the full stature of

who is our light and our life. Amen

Whether you’re looking for your future spiritual home or seeking to step into Halifax’s incredible past, our doors are open to you.

What you'll find at St. Paul's

Our doors are typically wide open to people from all backgrounds who wish to join us on our faith journey, as we follow Jesus Christ. Week by week for over 270 years, people from all walks of life have gathered in our building, in joyful celebration of the love of  God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  We look forward to re-opening to the public on weekdays once the Public Health restrictions caused by COVID19 have been lifted.  Our staff/volunteers continue working: please contact us to make any appointments.

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.

Explore History

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.

Find Sanctuary

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.
