        Dates of existence



        United Church of Abercorn, initially of Methodist denomination, was organized in 1870. The Methodists belonged to the Union Church Society of Abercorn and worshipped in the Union Church as well as the Methodists-New Connection, the Congregationalists, the Presbyterians, and the Baptists. The Methodist services were discontinued in the Union Church in 1924 and the members joined the Sutton congregation. In 1925, when the United Church of Canada was founded, amalgamating the Methodist, Presbyterian, and Congregational Churches, the remaining members of the Union Church Society of Abercorn decided to join the Union and formed the United Church of Abercorn. The church building was closed and sold to the Anglicans in 1955. United Church of Abercorn was under the jurisdiction of the Quebec and Sherbrooke Presbytery of the Montreal and Ottawa Conference of the United Church of Canada.
