Alexander Street Baptist Church was built in 1867 on the south side of Alexander Street between Yonge and Church streets for approximately $10,000. This modest church with seating for 480 parishioners was noted for its missionary work. As with the Jarvis Street Baptist Church, the Alexander Street congregation grew out of the earlier Bond Street Baptist church. By 1886, the parishioners, dissatisfied with the Alexander Street building, decided to build a new church and sold the Alexander Street church to the Anglican Church in 1888. The church was demolished in the mid 1950s when the south side of Alexander Street was razed for the City Park apartment complex.
