Stately and beautiful!

It was for a Wordfest presentation. The acoustics are great, the building is beautiful. Just sitting in it is calming. I love being there.

I have only attended many fine concerts here, not church services. The venue is nice for concerts, although the seating is squishy and lines of sight are not always great, especially for shorter folks!

I was able to experience the Calgary premiere for the beautiful film 'Violent' in the Knox United Church, which provided the perfect atmosphere.

Very beautiful. Quaint. Rustic. Impressive stained glass. A little hot even for the fall. The steps were small for a large gathering as we toasted the bride and groom with bubbles. Lots of us had to not wish them well as they descended into their limo. :(

We were here Dec 2016 for the choral festival as our granddaughter sings with the Calgary girls choir. The church is a beautiful old building in downtown Calgary. The singing was wonderful, we really enjoyed our evening. The only problem is the cost of parking

We had the pleasure of attending a Wedding at this Church and it was lovely. The feeling can only be described as reverent. The ceremony was very special in this beautiful church and even the smell of the wood within the interior made our experience more special. Blessed to have experienced such a happy occasion here!

For the most part, seeing a concert at Knox is a fantastic experience. the uniqueness of the venue with the historic aspect, sitting in pews and general intimacy of the church elevates the experience. The only knocks I have are the hardness of the seats and the inability to see the stage from certain vantage points. The center pews are... More

I haven't yet been to a service at Knox, but it's a building that warrants some time to simply admire as you walk around downtown.
