East End United Church, originally Danforth Avenue Methodist Church and later Eastminster United, is located at 310 Danforth Ave (at Jackman Ave on the northwest corner) in the Playter Estates-Danforth neighbourhood of Toronto.
Built in 1923/24 at the cost of $150,000, architect George Martel Miller designed the red brick church in the Gothic Revival style. The first service was held in the late Spring of 1924, and so many people arrived that there was not enough room for everyone. Pastor JJ Coulter jokingly said, “We would have built a larger church if we thought you would come every Sunday.” The following year, the church was renamed Danforth United.
By the 1950s, the church membership exceeded 1,700.
In 1966, North Broadview United Church joined Danforth United and, through a vote by the congregation, was renamed Eastminster United. Stained glass windows were moved from North Broadview United and installed in the sanctuary.
In 1984, Donlands United joined the congregation. A stained glass window was also brought from Donlands United and added to the church’s sanctuary.
In 2018, Eastminster United joined with Cosburn United and Glen Rhodes United and is called East End United today.
The building received heritage status from the City of Toronto in 2022.
