Biographical history

Asbestos United Church was organized in 1925. During its first years, services were conducted in the Protestant school, until 1929 when the church was erected from the frame building reconstructed from the Danville Methodist Church, which was moved to Asbestos after the closure of the church. In 1970, with the Jeffrey Mine Open Pit coming closer to the Church, it was decided to sell the building to the Canadian Johns-Manville Corporation in Asbestos. Asbestos United Church amalgamated with Trinity United Church in Danville in 1972 or 1973. Asbestos United Church was under the jurisdiction of the Quebec-Sherbrooke Presbytery of the Montreal and Ottawa Conference of the United Church of Canada. The Church was governed by the Official Board, the Board of Stewards, and the congregation in cooperation with organizations within the Church, such as the Sunday School, the Ladies' Aid, the Evening Women's Association, and the Young People's Society.
