Name of creator
Trinity United Church, called Drummondville United Church until 1951, was organized in 1927 within the Montreal Presbytery. Before the erection of the Church in 1928, the Courchesne Hall in Drummondville was used as a temporary place of worship. In 1971, due to a severe decline of the population, Trinity United Church became part of a three-point charge, the Ulverton Pastoral Charge, which includes Drummondville, Ulverton, and South Durham. Trinity United Church was closed and the church building was sold in 1997. Trinity United Church was under the jurisdiction of the Montreal Presbytery until 1971 when it was transferred to the Quebec and Sherbrooke Presbytery of the Montreal and Ottawa Conference of the United Church of Canada. The Church was governed by the Board of Trustees, the Official Board, the Session, the Board of Stewards, and the Congregation with organizations within the Church, such as the Sunday School, the United Church Women, the Young Women's Society, the Women's Missionary Society, the Choir, and various committees.
Scope and content
The fonds contains source material on Church management, the congregation's affairs, the Sunday School, the Women's organizations, the youth organizations, the Choir, and different committees for the Trinity United Church in Drummondville from 1920 to 1997.

It consists of minutes, account books, annual reports, architectural drawings, legal documents, orders of service, registers of baptisms, marriages, and burials, a guest book, membership rolls, historical sketches, a Remembrance Book, correspondence, photographs, a Bible marker, a pulpit drape, and a communion table cover.
