Biographical history

Sawyerville United Church, initially of Methodist denomination, was organized in 1850 as part of the Eaton Circuit, which later became the Sawyerville Circuit. These circuits included Sawyerville, Maple Leaf, Randboro, and Clifton. In 1925, when the United Church of Canada was founded, amalgamating Methodist, Presbyterian and Congregational Churches, the Sawyerville Methodist Church decided to join the Union. Since 1970, the Church has been part of the United Eaton Valley Pastoral Charge, which includes Bishopton, Birchton, Bulwer, Cookshire, Island Brook, East Angus, Sawyerville, East Clifton and Scotstown. Sawyerville 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 Board of Trustees, the Official Board and the Congregation in co-operation with organizations within the Church such as the Sunday School, youth groups, as well as UCW and other adults' organizations.

The church building was destroyed by fire on 9 July 2006.
