Our Heritage/Our Future



St. John’s has been a presence of Christian ministry in the east end of Toronto for the past 160 years. Meetings first began in 1850 and, with the establishment of the parish in 1853, a small wooden schoolhouse was moved here and used as a church. The bell was installed and the church and cemetery consecrated by Bishop Strachan in 1855. Many United Empire Loyalists and other early settlers are buried here. St. John’s founded a number of parishes in East Toronto.

Our historic building was built in 1893 and enlarged in 1915. Distinctive features include some of Toronto’s finest McCausland stained glass windows, some of which you will see on this website.

St. John’s celebrates the past and looks forward to the future. With our dynamic Christian ministry, we are committed to being a presence in this community now and in years to come. We hope you will come and join us.
