Name of creator
The Ayer's Cliff-Magog Pastoral Charge, initially called the Ayer's Cliff-Coaticook-Way's Mills Pastoral Charge, was formed in 1962. It then included 3 churches facing decreasing membership and financial difficulties: Beulah United Church in Ayer's Cliff, Sisco Memorial United Church in Coaticook, and Way's Mills United Church. In 1971, two more churches were added: St. Paul's United Church in Magog and Georgeville United Church. The Pastoral Charge was then renamed Ayer's Cliff-Magog Pastoral Charge. The Ayer's Cliff-Magog Pastoral Charge is under the jurisdiction of the Quebec-Sherbrooke Presbytery of the Montreal and Ottawa Conference of the United Church of Canada. The Pastoral Charge is governed by the Official Board in co-operation with organization and Committees.
