Administrative history

Bluevale United Church, located at 89 Queen St in Bluevale, was established in 1925, formerly Methodist and Presbyterian. The Methodist Church in Bluevale was dedicated on September 24, 1865. The Presbyterian congregation in Bluevale was established in 1854 with services held at the school. A church building was erected in 1907 and named Knox Presbyterian Church. The Methodist and Presbyterian churches joined the United Church of Canada in 1925 to form Bluevale United Church. It formed part of a three-point charge with Ebenezer in Morris Township and Whitechurch. In 1985, Bluevale separated from Whitechurch to form two separate charges. On July 1, 1986, Bluevale charge amalgamated with Walton Pastoral Charge to form Walton-Bluevale Pastoral Charge with Duff's church in Walton. This charge then separated ca. 2014. Bluevale once again became a single-point charge. It is still an active congregation of the United Church of Canada.

Ebenezer United Church in Morris Township was established in 1925. It closed ca. 1985
