Dates of existence


The Lennoxville United Church, initially of Methodist denomination, was organized as an independent charge in 1875. At the time, Methodism had been practised in Lennoxville for more than fifty years. The present Church building was dedicated in 1876. It was built to replace an older church [c.1849], which burned in the Lennoxville fire of 1874. In 1925, the United Church of Canada was founded, amalgamating Methodist, Presbyterian and Congregational Churches. The Methodist Church in Lennoxville decided to join the Union. Over the years, the Lennoxville charge had the oversight of many congregations, namely those in Johnville, Capelton and Minton. Today, the Church is still active. The Lennoxville United Church is under the jurisdiction of the Quebec and 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 United Church Women.
