Timothy Eaton Memorial Church, in Toronto, Ontario, was erected at 230 St. Clair Avenue West in 1914 as a Methodist congregation, and named for department store founder Timothy Eaton.

It is one of two United Church congregations in the area and on St. Clair, the other being Deer Park United Church, formerly Presbyterian. It is a member of the Churches on the Hill.

This congregation has been known for its preaching ministry and music, has maintained radio and later internet broadcasts of its services.

This church offers programs and events for all people of all ages.
