Broadway Tabernacle United Church in Toronto was established in 1925; formerly Broadway Tabernacle Methodist Church, which was known originally as Spadina Avenue Methodist Church. The church began as a Methodist New Connexion mission and was first located at the northeast corner of Spadina and St. Patrick Street (now Dundas Street West). In 1876, the building was re-located to the northeast corner of Spadina and College Stree and in 1879 a new building was constructed on the site. In 1889 this building was demolished and replaced by another new building which was re-named Broadway Tabernacle Methodist Church. In 1929 Broadway Tabernacle United Church closed and the congregation became part of College Street United Church.
