Name of creator
The Sangster Memorial United Church was co-founded in 1946 by the ministers and the members of Plymouth United Church and Trinity United Church in Sherbrooke. The large number of residents from the West Ward of Sherbrooke attending the two United Churches asked for a church of their own. The Inaugural service, however, was not held until 1949. In 1966, the number of members had dropped and the Sangster Memorial United Church was dissolved. Its members went back to Plymouth United Church or Trinity United Church. Sangster Memorial United Church was administered in a manner in keeping with the United Church of Canada Manual. The Church Boards consisted of : Board of Trustees, Official Board Session, Board of Stewards, and Congregation. Committees were also formed according to the needs of the congregation. Women from Sangster Memorial United Church were active in the United Church Women. Sangster Memorial United Church was part of the Quebec-Sherbrooke Presbytery of the Montreal-Ottawa Conference of the United Church of Canada.
The Sangster Memorial United Church records remained in the custody of the Plymouth United Church, and subsequently of Plymouth-Trinity United Church. Between 1989 and 1991, the records were transferred in many accessions to the Montreal\Ottawa Conference Archives then located at Bishop's University. In 1993, the records of the Conference were moved to Montreal, but the records of the Quebec-Sherbrooke Presbytery and its local churches remained at Bishop's University under the management of the Eastern Townships Research Centre. In 1994, Plymouth-Trinity United Church transferred the register of Baptisms, Marriages and Burials to the archives.
