Administrative history

East Farnham United Church, initially called East Farnham Union Church, was organized around 1843. It was used by Free Will Baptists, Canadian Wesleyan New Connexion Methodists, and Anglicans until 1867 and by the Baptists, the Methodists, and the Congregationalists until 1925. When the United Church of Canada was founded in 1925, amalgamating the Methodists, Presbyterian, and Congregational Churches, the East Farnham Union Church decided to join the Union. Although regular church services have been discontinued, a special service is still held in the church building once a year. East Farnham United Church is under the jurisdiction of the Quebec and Sherbrooke Presbytery of the Montreal and Ottawa Conference of the United Church of Canada.
