Biographical history

Hatley United Church, initially of Methodist denomination, was organized in 1836 and the church was built in 1840. In 1925, when the United Church of Canada was founded, amalgamating Methodist, Presbyterian and Congregational Churches, the Methodist Church in Hatley decided to join the Union, becoming Hatley United Church. Since either 1984, 1985 or 1986, the Church has been part of the Waterville-Hatley-North Hatley Pastoral Charge. Hatley 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 in co-operation with organizations within the Church, such as the United Church Women and the Young People's Union.
