Name of creator
East Clifton United Church, initially of Methodist denomination, was organized in the 1860s. It then belonged to the Sawyerville Methodist Circuit with Randboro. In 1925, when the United Church of Canada was founded, amalgamating the Methodist, Presbyterian and Congregational Churches, East Clifton Methodist Church decided to join the Union. In 1969, East Clifton United Church closed and the congregation was joined with the newly formed Eaton Valley Pastoral Charge. Since 1985, an annual service is celebrated in the church. East Clifton United Church is under the jurisdiction of the Quebec and Sherbrooke Presbytery of the Montreal and Ottawa Conference of the United Church of Canada.
Scope and content
The fonds contains source material on the Church's history and the Church's accounting from 1936 to 1991. It consists of an account book, press clippings, and photographs. The fonds is comprised of the following series: Financial Resources (1936-1951), Historical (1969, 1991), Organizations ([197-?]), and Photographs (1991).
Immediate source of acquisition
The documents were loaned in 1993 by the Montreal and Ottawa Conference of the United Church of Canada. The Busy Bees Cook Book was donated in 2016 by Allan Rowell.
