HISTORY OF OUR CONGREGATION:

 

There has been a Christian presence in the Mount Albert village since the middle 1800's, provided by our Methodist and Presbyterian ancestors. In 1925 the congregations of the Presbyterian Church (White Church on main Street) and the Methodist Church (41 Alice Street) joined together to form the Mount Albert United Church. The Methodist building was used to house the congregation and the minister of the Presbyterian Church became the minister of the new joint congregation.

Since that time, our congregation has served the people of Mount Albert, and provided United Church worship for all who wish to attend.

Our present building was built in 1868. Additions were added to both the back and front of the church in the 1950's and 1960's. For many years the pastoral charge included Hartman United Church (on Davis Drive). When it was closed in the 1960's stained glass windows from the Hartman United Church were installed in the Narthex of our church and church furnishings were brought to the Mount Albert United Church. The people of the Hartman congregation became members of the Mount Albert United Church.

THE UNITED OF

 

In the early 1920’s three Canadian church denominations made an intense effort to consolidate their mandate of spreading the Good News of the Gospel. The strengthen the effects in the mission fields, both at home and abroad, many of the Congregational Methodist and Presbyterian church agreed that union was beneficial.

 

On June 10th, in 1925, a special worship service was held in , , and the United Church of Canada was born. Since that time, other denominations, such as “The Evangelical United Brethern”, have joined the union of the United Church of Canada.

 

The United Church of Canada has ongoing dialogue with many other Christian denominations, and works willingly as an Ecumenical partner in the World Council of Churches. As well, it is involved with many national and international development and aid groups, government study and action groups, world peace organizations, etc., - all to the glory of God and in keeping with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

 

Within the United Church of Canada conciliar structure, you will find there is always room for you!
