Our church was founded in 1921 by families dedicated to providing worship and Christian Education for the community. It has undergone many changes over the years, with additions to the building in 1950 and 1961. We are presently undergoing another great change as we leave the building altogether, hopefully to rebuild as a Seniors Residence with a chapel and community space on the main floor.
Through all of these different stages in the life of the congregration, the commitment to provide worship and Christian Education for children and adults has remained strong. Members of the congregation value a deep sense of caring for each other, the wider community and the earth. We will continue to grow in our faith while worshipping in temporary accommodation as we await the outcome of our application to redevelop.
* Proud of our heritage

Our revised plans for the proposed development were submitted in November 2011 for approval by the City of Toronto.
The congregation vacated the premises in September 2011. They engaged Priestley Demolition Inc. to demolish the building. This was completed in early March 2012. The site has been left with a safe, flat surface.
