Dates of existence


Centenary United Church in Stanstead was founded in 1804. The congregation was, at that time, a circuit of the New England Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, which included Stanstead, Hatley, Compton and Barnston. In September 1869, the Church was renamed Stanstead Wesleyan Methodist Church and in 1909, Centenary Methodist Church. In 1925, when the United Church of Canada was founded, amalgamating Methodist, Presbyterian and Congregational Churches, Centenary Methodist Church decided to join the Union, becoming Centenary United Church. Since 1981 or 1982, the Church has been part of the United Steeples Pastoral Charge, which also includes Stanstead South United Church (Rock Island), Wesley United Church (Beebe) and Graniteville United Church. Centenary United Church is under the jurisdiction of the Quebec and Sherbrooke Presbytery of the Montreal and Ottawa Conference of the United Church of Canada. The Church is governed by the Official Board, the Session, the Board of Stewards and the Board of Trustees in co-operation with committees and organizations within the Church, such as the United Church Women.
