Administrative history

Amos Presbyterian Church in Dromore, Ontario was founded in the mid-1800s. A church building was constructed in 1864 on property donated by Mr. and Mrs. George and Margaret Amos. The first minister called to the church was the Rev. H. Crozier. Prior to 1878 the congregation was linked with the congregations in Fairbairn and Holstein as a three-point charge. After 1878 it was linked with Knox Presbyterian Church, Normanby in a two-point charge. In 1962, the two congregations were once again linked with Holstein in a three-point charge. The original church was replaced with a brick building in 1884.
