St. Matthews Lutheran Church Doors Open Waterloo Region

St. Matthews Lutheran Church

The interior is a treasure – among the finest in the region. Flooded with light through huge transept windows, the rib-vaulted sanctuary has changed little since 1914. Original features include a wrap-around gallery, brass chandeliers and carved woodwork. The 3,000-pipe Casavant organ is among the largest of its kind in Canada. At 3 p.m., visitors will hear it being played!
