Name of creator
West Brome United Church, initially of Methodist denomination, was organized in 1856 and a year later a church building was erected. In 1925, when the United Church of Canada was founded, amalgamating the Methodist, Presbyterian, and Congregational Churches, the West Brome Methodist Church decided to join the Union. In 1967, due to decreasing membership, the church closed and the building was sold. West Brome United Church was under the jurisdiction of 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 and the Congregation in cooperation with organizations within the Church, such as the Women's Association.
Scope and content
The fonds contains source material on Church management, the congregation's affairs, and the Women's Organizations from 1876 to 1978. It consists of minutes, a register of baptisms, marriages, and burials, a list of ministers, a financial report, correspondence, membership registers, and an historical sketch. Also included among the material is a bookmark featuring photographs of West Brome United Church, Sutton United Church and Reverend B. Mallalieu. The fonds is comprised of the following series: Church Boards ([1876?]-1957), Buildings and Property (1925-1927), Financial Resources (1948), Baptisms, Marriages, and Burials (1888-1925), Membership (1884-1921), Historical (1978-1990), Organizations (1949-1961), Photographs ([193-?]).
