Biographical history

Calvary United Church in Sutton, initially of Methodist denomination, was established at the beginning of the 19th century. It was part of the Essex, Vermont circuit until 1821 and of the St. Armand circuit from 1821 to 1855, before becoming the head of its own circuit. The congregation worshipped in private residences and in a Union church until 1877, when the Methodists decided to build their own church. In 1925, when the United Church of Canada was formed, amalgamating the Methodist, Congregational, and Presbyterian Churches, the Methodist Church in Sutton, decided to join the Union. It was then renamed Calvary United Church. Calvary United Church is part of the New Vision Pastoral Zone.
