Administrative history

Bathurst Street United Church in Toronto was established in 1925; formerly Bathurst Street Methodist Church. It was located at 736 Bathurst Street, at the corner of Lennox Street, just south of Bloor Street West. Since ca.1985, the congregation no longer uses the Bathurst Street building but rather holds its services in the Trinity-St. Paul's United Church building at 427 Bloor Street West.

Bathurst Street Methodist Church was established in 1884 upon the union of Bathurst Street Primitive Methodist Church and Seaton Village Methodist (formerly Wesleyan Methodist) Church (the area north and west of the intersection of Bathurst Street and Bloor Street West was known as Seaton Village at that time). The Primitive Methodist Church was located at the intersection of Bathurst and Lennox Street, just south of Bloor; the Seaton Village Church was located at what is now 643 Markham Street, just north and west of Bathurst and Bloor. After Methodist union in 1884, the Seaton Village building was moved to the site of the Primitive Methodist building at Bathurst and Lennox, and the two buildings were attached. A new church building was dedicated in 1888, with the original building used as a Sunday School until 1910, at which time it was demolished and replaced by another Sunday School building.
