This church, designed by C.J. Gibson, was built in 1893 and enlarged by C.D. Lennox in 1915. Distinctive features are a high-peaked, hammer-beamed roof and stained glass from the original church in an east window. Meetings first began in 1850 and, with the establishment of the parish in 1853, a small wooden school house was moved here and used as a church. The bell, still in use, 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.
