Name of creator
St. Paul's United Church, initially of Methodist denomination, was organised in 1864. From 1832 to the dedication of the Wesleyan Methodist Church in Waterloo, 21 July 1864, the Anglicans and Methodists shared the same church, the Frost Village Union Church. Three years later, the church would become a victim of fire; a new church was built and is still used by the Congregation today. In 1925, when the United Church of Canada was founded, amalgamating Methodist, Presbyterian and Congregational Churches, the Waterloo Methodist Church decided to join the Union and became Waterloo United Church. The Church was renamed St. Paul's United Church in 1940. St. Paul's and Fulford United Church have been a two-point Pastoral charge since 1954. In 2006, Waterloo Pastoral Charge included Waterloo, Granby, Sutton, Dunham and Fulford (called the New Vision Pastoral Zone). St. Paul's United Church is under the jurisdiction of the Quebec-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, the Session, the Board of Stewards, and the Congregation in co-operation with organizations within the Church, such as the United Church Women (previously called the Ladies' Aid Society and Women's Association), the Women's Missionary Society, the Hi-C (previously called Young People's Society), the Adults Group and the Tennis Club.
