Richmond Avenue Methodist-Episcopal Church, also known as Richmond Avenue United Methodist Church, is a historic Methodist Episcopal Church located at Buffalo in Erie County, New York. It consists of two structures: a rectilinear Chapel structure, which dates to 1885-1891, and a larger Temple structure dating to 1887-1898. Both structures are two and a half stories set on a raised basement story, with two three-story towers. They are built of ashlar Medina sandstone. It is now home to the Upper West Side Arts Center.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2008.[1] It is located in the Elmwood Historic District–West.
