The Zion Church Cultural Centre was built in 1873 by the Methodists of L'Amaroux, the Finch Avenue community between Victoria Park and Warden, on land donated by Henry Scarce. It was acquired by the Borough of North York in 1971, and designated as an example of a typical rural church.
North York Council approved the renovation, restoration and development of the Zion Primitive Methodist Church for community use as a cultural facility, meeting a need for space for craft shows, small performances, recitals, visual art displays, meetings, workshops and similar functions (Council Resolution 97-08, April 2, 1997). This continues to be the focus at Zion CCC today.
