Administrative history

Alberton Presbyterian Church, Ontario, was established ca. 1855. The congregation was also known as the United Presbyterian Church of Ancaster West, and with the formation of the Canada Presbyterian Church in 1861, as the Canada Presbyterian Church of Ancaster West. The congregation was joined with the congregations in Ancaster Village and Ancaster East (Carluke) as a three-point charge until 1870. With the union of the various branches of Presbyterianism in the country in 1875, the church in Alberton became part of The Presbyterian Church in Canada. In 1925, the congegation voted against joining the United Church of Canada.
