Biographical history

Granby United Church, initially of congregational denomination and formerly known as the First Congregational Church, was organized in 1830. In 1925, when the United Church of Canada was founded, amalgamating Methodist, Presbyterian and Congregational Churches, the First Congregational Church in Granby decided to join the union and change its name to Trinity United Church. In 1928, the Drummond Street United Church, also in Granby, was amalgamated with Trinity United Church to form the Granby United Church. Since 1945, the Abbotsford United Church has been affiliated with the Granby United Church. Since 1925 or 1926, the Church has been part of the Granby Pastoral Charge. In 1975, Granby United Church was transferred from the Montreal Presbytery to the Quebec-Sherbrooke Presbytery of the Montreal and Ottawa Conference of the United Church of Canada. The Church is governed by the Official Board, the Session, the Board of Stewards and the Board of Trustees in co-operation with committees and organizations within the Church, such as the Sunday School and the Women's Missionary Society.
