Save St. Peter's Church

We need YOUR urgent help to save the beautiful green-roofed architectural gem known as St. Peter’s Estonian Evangelical Lutheran Church at 817 Mount Pleasant Road, Toronto, designed by famous architect Mihkel (Michael) Bach. The church is at a cross-roads in its history. Current management proposed that the church be sold to a developer. A recent vote held in March stopped the sale of the church, but just barely. The Executive of the congregation announced their resignation. An appeal concerning this vote has been made. There is a lot of work to be done to ensure the continued existence of the church. Time is of the essence!

We are a group of volunteer individuals composed of church members and non-members who care and believe in the future of the church. Our goal is to save the church. We are suggesting a new vision and new ways of moving forward. You may read more about us at

If you are an interested admirer of architectural history; a member of the community concerned about future development; a fellow Christian wanting to save a church; an immigrant wanting to save a piece of the development and growth of Canada that the church represents; or a current, past, or future congregation member, then we desperately need your help!

Your financial help is needed to help us to continue our goal of saving the church. We need funds to cover expenses such as website fees, and fees for consultation with experts in their fields concerning future options, and ways of moving forward.

We are not authorized church representatives, and therefore tax receipts are not available. You may contribute anonymously.

Any financial support, big or small, is very gratefully appreciated. Thank you! Please NOTE, when making your donation, the GoFundMe service will ask if you wish to leave a tip. This tip is NOT for our cause. If you do not wish to support the GoFundMe platform, ensure that you enter Zero.
