Administrative history

Alberton Presbyterian Church on Prince Edward Island was formed in 1925 by those members of the original Alberton Presbyterian Church (est. 1831) that voted against Church Union and desired to remain part of The Presbyterian Church in Canada. The majority of the members voted to become a United Church.
