Biographical history

St. Andrew's United Church in Kingsbury, initially of Presbyterian denomination, was organized sometime during the 1850s or the 1860s. The church building was built in 1869. In 1875, it was part of the Melbourne charge, along with Knox Church in Brompton Gore (also known as Flodden). In 1879, St. Andrew's (Kingsbury) and Knox (Brompton Gore) petitioned presbytery to be granted its own charge, autonomous from the Melbourne charge. This petition was successful and in 1880 they were united into one charge. In 1925, the United Church of Canada was founded, amalgamating Methodist, Presbyterian and Congregational Churches. The St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church of Kingsbury decided to join this union and thus became the St. Andrews United Church. St. Andrew's United Church is under the jurisdiction of the Quebec and Sherbrooke Presbytery of the Montreal and Ottawa Conference of the United Church of Canada.
