Client: [Côte-Saint-Louis Mission Church]
Architect: E. Maxwell

Description: This small church was situated in what is known now as Plateau Mont-Royal, a French working-class neighbourhood east of Saint-Lawrence Boulevard and north of Sherbrooke Street. Built for the Methodist Church under the direction of Reverend W.J. Wood, it was a rectangular, 40x 60 Neo-Gothic temple. It was four bays long, entered from the narrow end, with a view to the altar at the other end. Three wooden trusses with iron rods supported the roof. The 1895 additions and alterations called for reorganisation of the floor plan. A new entrance to the side allowed the altar to be moved to the centre of the long side (wall opposite Saint-Denis Street entrance), with seating forming a hemicycle. Above the new altar and pulpit, a transept was built and the original roofing redone accordingly. The building gained 20 feet in length and an asymmetrical, more animated silhouette.
