The Metropolitan United Church rounds out the trinity of massive churches just east of the Eaton Centre. The structure was constructed in 1872 and designed by Henry Langley. It is yet another example of the craze for Gothic architecture that swept across the city in the 19th century, with its austere spire and slate grey walls. Inside the church is the largest pipe organ in Canada. The Church was originally known as the Metropolitan Methodist Church, but Methodists, Presbyterians and Congregationalists came together in 1925 to form the United Church, and thus we now have the Metropolitan United Church. Outside the main doors are a series of chess boards (tables set up by the city) where you can watch a few good games of chess when the weather is warm enough.
Address: Queen and Church Streets
Directions: Just east of the Eaton Centre
