Name of creator
Melbourne Ridge United Church, initially of Methodist denomination, was organized in 1837 or 1838. In 1925, when the United Church of Canada was founded, amalgamating the Methodist, Presbyterian, and Congregational Churches, the Methodist Church of Melbourne Ridge decided to join the Union. Melbourne Ridge United Church and St. Andrew's United Church in Kingsbury formed a circuit from 1925 to 1951. In 1956, Melbourne Ridge United Church came under the Ulverton Pastoral Charge and St. Andrew's United Church in Kingsbury closed a few years later. During the 1970s, Melbourne Ridge United Church was added to the Richmond and Melbourne Pastoral Charge. Melbourne Ridge United Church is under the jurisdiction of the Quebec and Sherbrooke Presbytery of the Montreal and Ottawa Conference of the United Church of Canada. It is governed by the Board of Trustees in co-operation with organizations within the Church, such as the Sunday School and the United Church Women.
Scope and content
