Member ROMWalk: Huron Street Churches

Exclusively for ROM Members. REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. Space is limited.

ROM Members will visit two architecturally very different churches.  The Gothic Revival Bloor Street United Church to see its Great South Window, amid 20th century stained glass by Celtic Studio.  You will then walk down Huron Street to St. Thomas Church, designed in Arts & Crafts style by renowned Toronto architect Eden Smith to view examples of stained glass design including ones from the Bromsgrove Guild.

Member ROMWalks are very popular and spaces fill up quickly.  If you register and then find you are unable to attend, please let us know so that we can open up the space for others.

Meeting Place:
Please meet at Bloor Street United Church, located at 300 Bloor Street West.  Look for the purple ROMWalks umbrella.

In 1925 the Methodist, Presbyterian and Congregationalist church joined to form the United Church. There are still some Presbyterian churches who didn’t join. 

The figures in the 3 panels are the leaders of their respective churches:

  • The left figure is Dr Willam Gunn (Congregationalist)
  • The middle figure is Dr George Pidgeon who was minister of Bloor Street Presbyterian (now United Church)
  • The right figure is Dr Samuel Chown (Methodist) shown at the Mutual Street arena for the Union of the 3 churches
