Name of creator
Island Brook United Church, initially of Methodist denomination, was probably organized around 1868; it was then called the Methodist Church of Island Brook. The church was erected between 1868 and 1870. In 1925, when the United Church of Canada was founded, amalgamating Methodist, Presbyterian and Congregational Churches, the Methodist Church of Island Brook joined the Union to form the Island Brook United Church. In 1969, the congregation was amalgamated with Cookshire United Church. Since then, a service is held every year in the summer in the former Island Brook United Church. Island Brook United Church was under the jurisdiction of the Quebec and Sherbrooke Presbytery of the Montreal and Ottawa Conference of the United Church of Canada. The Church was governed by the Board of Trustees and the Congregation in cooperation with organizations within the Church, such as the United Church Women and the Women's Missionary Society.
Scope and content
The fonds contains source material on the Congregation's affairs and the women's organizations of Island Brook United Church from 1878 to 1991. It consists mainly of minutes, account books, circuit registers, and registers of baptisms, marriages, and burials. The fonds is comprised of the following series: Church Boards (1930-1947), Baptisms, Marriages, and Burials (1878-1916, [196-?]), Membership (1884-1969), Organizations (1935-1990), and Photographs (1991).
