Administrative history

Yonge Street United Church, located at the corners of Yonge and Summerhill streets in Toronto, was established in 1925. It began as a Methodist Church in 1873 at the corner of Yonge and Marlborough streets in the city. That church was torn down in 1911, and the new building had its first service in the same year. In 1971 a fire destroyed the church, and the congregation met at a local banquet hall for much of the next two years, before it decided to amalgamate with St. Andrew's United Church in 1973.
