Name of creator
Dunham United Church, initially of Methodist denomination, started as a circuit in 1806 including, from 1812 to 1818, Farnham, North and South Stukely, and Brome. From 1818 to 1839, Dunham was a part of the St. Armand Circuit. In 1925, when the United Church of Canada was founded, amalgamating Methodist, Presbyterian and Congregational Churches, the Dunham Methodist Church decided to join the Union. It was then renamed Dunham United Church. Dunham 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 Board of Trustees, the Official Board and the Congregation.
Scope and content
The fonds contains source material on Church management and the congregation's affairs for Dunham United Church from 1806 to 1991. It also provides information on Farnam's Corner United Church from 1953 to 1967.
