Inscription. This picturesque building is one of the finest expressions in wood of the Gothic Revival style in Canada. It was constructed in 1875 for the Reformed Episcopal church in Victoria by the Reverend Edward Cridge. Architect John Teague enhanced the building's Gothic character by exploiting the advantages of board-and-batten siding to reinforce the vertical thrust of its pointed roof, pinnacles and spire. Inside, a Gothic hammer beam ceiling spans the broad open space to provide an unbroken view of the apse and pulpit.

Cette église pittoresque est l'un des plus beaux exemples en bois du style néo-gothique au Canada. Érigée en 1875, elle abrita l'Église épiscopale réformée qui a été établie à Victoria par le pasteur Edward Cridge. L'architecte John Teague a mis en valeur son caractère gothique en utilisant un lambris vertical à couvre-joints qui accentue la verticalité du toit à pignon, des pinacles et de la flèche. A l'intérieur, le plafond à blochets coiffe une grande surface ouverte, qui permet une vue bien dégagée de l'abside et de la chaire.
