Metropolitan United Church

Located in Toronto's Garden District, the Metropolitan United Church is one the largest neo-gothic structures in the city. Originally knowsn as the Metropolitan Wesleyan Methodist Church, its name changed in 1925 when the Methodist Church merged with Presbyterians and Congregationalists to form the United Church of Canada. It is well known for its fifty-four bell carillon heard daily throughout the neighbourhood. 

Designed by architect Henry Langley. the church was nearly completely destroyed by fire in 1928. Its quick restoration brought back its original French Gothic appeal, along with some change. The church is mentioned in Terry Murray's Faces on Placesfor its exterior's architectural sculptures. 

Today, the chuch is a progressive supporter of the LGBT community and offers a wide array of community aid for the poor and homeless.
