Administrative history

The congregation of Athelstan Presbyterian Church in Quebec dates from 1835. The original church building, erected in that year, was replaced with a newer building in 1877. From 1954 until 1970, the Athelstan congregation was linked with those in Rockburn and Elgin, while from 1970 until 1983, Athelstan and Elgin were linked with St. Andrew's Church, Huntingdon. On December 31st 1982, the Athelstan and Elgin congregations amalgamated. Since 1983, Athelstan has been linked with St. Andrew's, Huntingdon. The exact date of the establishment of the Elgin congregation is not known, however, it was linked with Athelstan as early as 1861. In 1846, some members of the Athelstan congregation, along with some from the congregation in Huntingdon, split to form a new church as part of the United Presbyterian Church of Canada. This congregation, which became known as the Second Presbyterian Church, Huntingdon, merged with St. Andrew's Church, Huntingdon, on June 7th, 1894.
