Name of creator
The Acton Vale Circuit, which was of Methodist denomination, was organized around 1898. It included three preaching points: Acton Vale, St-Theodore-d'Acton, and Bethany. It seems to have had over the years a French and an English Section. The church was closed in the 1920s.
The Acton Vale Circuit was part of the Waterloo District of the Montreal Conference of the Methodist Church of Canada.
Scope and content
The fonds contains source material on the Church management and the congregation's affairs for the Acton Vale Circuit from 1889 to 1927. It also provides information on the Bethany Methodist Cemetery. It consists of minutes, a deed, a register of baptisms, marriages, and burials, and a photograph. The fonds is comprised of the following series: Church Boards (1898-1922), Buildings and Property (1889), Baptisms, Marriages, and Burials (1915-1927), and Photographs ([189-?]).
