|Information||The St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church congregation has the longest history of any Presbyterian congregation in Canada.
An interesting and unusual weather vane was placed on top the spire in recent times.
The five-and-one-half-foot hammered copper codfish weather vane reminds one that the first Christians represented Jesus Christ by the symbol of the fish, and several of the disciples were fishermen.
The weather vane may also be thought of as symbolic of Lunenburg, the fishing capital of Canada where Cod was "King."
