Knox United Church



Knox United Church has been known for over a century as β€œThe Cathedral of the West.” Built 1912-13, it is a prominent Gothic Revival style church located in the centre of downtown Calgary.


The Presbyterian congregation that gave birth to the present-day Knox United Church originally met at the I.G. Baker store in Inglewood, where Rev. Angus Robertson preached to a small crowd of 30 or so parishioners. The current neo-Gothic Paskapoo sandstone church building was completed in 1913 and its impressive arches and exterior buttresses continue to make Knox an inspiring architectural jewel in downtown Calgary.
