Notes
St. John's Lutheran Church (1837-2018) in Waterloo, Ontario was a member of the Eastern Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada. In 1837, the newly formed congregation purchased property in uptown Waterloo, at the modern-day intersection of King and Bridgeport Streets, and built a modest church. The congregation eventually outgrew original building, and in 1883 a new church was constructed on the same plot of land. A devastating fire destroyed the St. John’s Lutheran Church building on October 31, 1959. The congregation chose to rebuild at 22 Willow Street in Waterloo. The new church was dedicated on October 14, 1962. In 2018, St. John's Lutheran Church merged with St. Mark's Lutheran Church and Reformation Lutheran Church to form Trillium Lutheran Church, a worship community of the Eastern Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada. Trillium Lutheran Church is located in the former St. John’s Lutheran Church building at 22 Willow Street in Waterloo, Ontario.
