Toronto Chinese Methodist Church is a Christian church of the Wesleyan tradition, rooted in the love of Jesus Christ, with the emphasis on building a loving church, leading people to have peace with God and have the experience of an abundant life. The origin of the church can be traced back to the 1970s, when a substantial number of brothers and sisters from the Methodist Church in Hong Kong emigrated to Toronto. They came with the expectation to search for a church where they can worship and serve God. At that time, there was not even one Chinese Methodist Church in Canada. Thus, the dream for a Methodist Church in Toronto was gradually formed in their hearts. With the growing of the Chinese population, the urge of establishing a Methodist Church was firm and strong. In 1977, the Wesley Fellowship was founded. The brothers and sisters later saw the need of ministering to the visa students from Hong Kong, thus in 1982, the Wesley Education Services (Toronto) was established. This was the beginning of the student ministry and also the pastoral ministry to the Methodist members from Hong Kong.
In the early years, TCMC used the facilities of the Tri-Congregational Churches in North York and the first worship service was held on September 11, 1983. In 1985, the church property at Logan Avenue was purchased. In June 1992, a daughter church was planted in Markham, using the facilities of the Milliken Wesleyan Methodist Church. In August 1998, the land at Warden Avenue and Hwy.401 was purchased for the construction of a new building, for worship and for the sharing of the good news. With the providence of God, the new building was finished in the summer of 2001. TCMC continues to share the good news with Cantonese, Mandarin and English Communities and to serve the people in the Greater Toronto area.
TCMC has meetings for people of all ages and we welcome friends to join us.
