CHURCH on Church

Church on Church isn’t bound by anything. It has pew-like seating and a list of seasonal cocktails, DJs packing the dance floor, playing some of the best tracks. There are themed nights – like Bollywood or Latin – where dress is encouraged to match the music. One of their most anticipated events, Communion, is held once a month. Church holds itself as a place for people to come together and worship Toronto and all that it has to offer.
