Epiphany & St Mark Anglican Church

The Epiphany & St Mark Anglican Church, originally St Mark’s Church, is located at 201 Cowan Ave (south of Queen St W on the east side) in Toronto’s Little Tibet/Parkdale neighbourhood.

Built in 1881, architects Langley, Langley & Burke designed the church in the Gothic Revival style. The structure features polychrome brickwork, stained glass, buttressed sidewalls and an octagonal belfry with a spire and metalwork. The total value of the property was upwards of $8,000.

In 1984, the Church of the Epiphany (once at 1515 Queen St W) joined with St Mark’s congregation and was renamed The Church of the Epiphany and St Mark.

The church received heritage status from the City of Toronto in 1976 and Ontario Heritage Trust in 1984.
