Biographical history

St. Andrew's United Church in Inverness, initially called Inverness Methodist Church was organized during the 1830s. In 1832, the first meeting house was built. In 1962, a church was built at the extreme West end of the village. Inverness Methodist Church was part of the Inverness Circuit, which includes the mission of Upper Ireland, Lower Ireland, Leeds, New Ireland, Kinnear's Mills, Belcher Range, Walsh's Mills, Hamilton Range, and Adderly. In 1925, when the United Church of Canada was founded, amalgamating the Methodist, Presbyterian, and Congregational Churches, the Inverness Methodist Church decided to join the Union. In 1945, the Presbyterian and United Church congregations in Inverness joined together for worship, becoming the first congregations in Canada to co-operate in such a manner. St. Andrew's United Church and St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church have put in place a share ministry since 1960. In 1960, Inverness United Church sold its church building as a means of alleviating the cost of maintaining two buildings, as both congregations -- the Presbyterian and United Church -- worship together. Worship was to now take place a St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church in Inverness. Since 1982, St. Andrew's United Church has been part of the Kinnear's Mills-Inverness-Thetford Mines Pastoral Charge. St. Andrew's 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 churches are governed by a Session and Stewards.
