This parish, which extends from Yonge Street to the Don River, was established in 1863, using the Chapel in St. James' Cemetery for worship. The following year Gundry & Langley designed this church in High Victorian Gothic style. It was opened by John Strachan, Bishop of Toronto, on 10 June 1866. Additions were made in 1872 and 1880 to accommodate the growing congregation and the original south entrance became a baptistry. Following a serious fire in 1973, the chancel was modified and a choir and organ gallery built in the west end.
