Name of creator
Trinity United Church, initially of Methodist denomination, was organized between 1860 and 1863 in Cookshire. Thirty years later a church was erected. In 1925, when the United Church of Canada was founded, amalgamating Methodist, Presbyterian and Congregational Churches, the Cookshire Methodist Church decided to join the Union. In 1926, the church's name was changed to Trinity United Church by vote of the congregation. Trinity United Church in Cookshire 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, the Board of Stewards, and the Congregation in co-operation with organizations within the Church, such as the Young People's Society.
Scope and content
The fonds contains source material on Church management, the congregation's affairs, and the Church's youth organizations for the Trinity United Church in Cookshire from 1860 to 1991. It also provides information on the Cookshire Pastoral Charge, which included Bury, Bishopton, and Island Brook from 1965 to 1969. It consists of minutes, an account book, historical sketches, and registers of baptisms, marriages and burials. The fonds is comprised of the following series: Church Boards (1860-1988), Financial Resources (1965-1969), Guest Books (1963), Baptisms, Marriages, and Burials (1871-1912, [193-?], 1957), Historical (1963), Organizations ([193-?]), Photographs (1991), and Press Clippings (1988).
