Gould Street Presbyterian Church, formerly located on the southeast corner of Gould and Victoria streets, on what is now the campus of Ryerson University, was constructed for a new Presbyterian congregation. By 1855, they had decided on William Hay as the architect of their new church, and instructed him to prepare plans for a gothic church with a spire, and seating for 500 people. It is likely that Henry Langley was involved in the drafting of the plans for the church as he had begun his apprenticeship with Hay in 1854. The church was sold to the Catholic Apostolic Church in 1877 and remained in their possession until 1955 when it was demolished.
