Name of creator
St. Andrew's United Church in Windsor is the result of the amalgamation of three churches. In 1859, a Presbyterian Church (Free Kirk) was organized in Lower Windsor. In 1867, a Presbyterian (Church of Scotland) and a Methodist Church were organized in Windsor Mills, which became one congregation in 1917. The new church was called the United Church of Windsor Mills. In 1925, when the United Church of Canada was founded, amalgamating the Methodist, Presbyterian, and Congregational Churches, the United Church of Windsor Mills and the Methodist Church in Lower Windsor joined the Union. The United Church of Windsor Mills was subsequently renamed St. Andrew's United Church. Lower Windsor United Church was destroyed by fire in 1956 and the congregation officially united with St. Andrew's United Church the following year. St. Andrew's United Church amalgamated with Richmond-Melbourne United Church in the 1990s. St. Andrew's United Church was under the jurisdiction of the Quebec and Sherbrooke Presbytery of the Montreal and Ottawa Conference of the United Church of Canada.
