Biographical history

Knox United Church in Lake Megantic, initially of Presbyterian denomination, was organized in 1890. In 1926, one year after the foundation of the United Church of Canada, amalgamating the Methodist, Presbyterian and Congregational Churches, Knox Presbyterian Church in Lake Megantic joined the Union to form Knox United Church. Some dissident members, who decided to remain Presbyterian, established a new church and called it St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church. In 1963, Knox United Church was declared defunct and the church was sold to St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church. In 1980, the church building was transformed into a restaurant called "La Chapelle". Knox 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, the Congregation in cooperation with organizations within the Church, such as the Ladies' Aid Society.
