ⓘ Trinity-St. Pauls United Church

Trinity-St. Pauls United Church and Centre for Faith, Justice and the Arts is a church belonging to the United Church of Canada in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is located at 427 Bloor Street West, just west of Spadina Avenue in the citys downtown core. The church is formed of a mix of three different former congregations and houses a fourth independent congregation within its building.

Today, Trinity-St. Pauls has a reputation for being an activist church on a number of social justice issues. The church has strongly advocated for same-sex marriage, fair trade and improved conditions for the homeless. Former United Church moderator and noted activist Bill Phipps was minister from 1974 to 1983. Cheri DiNovo, a former Ontario New Democratic Party politician, became minister effective February 4, 2018.

                                     

1. History

The church began as Trinity Methodist Church, and the current structure was completed in 1889. With church union in 1925, it became Trinity United Church. In 1980, it merged with St. Pauls-Avenue Road United Church, which was itself a merger of St. Pauls Methodist and Avenue Road Presbyterian.
