Administrative history

A white frame church was built in 1875 and was consecrated as a Bible Christian church in October 1876. It became part of the unified Methodist Church of Canada in 1884. Until 1892, when the congretation received its own minister, it was served from Wiarton.

The women formed a missionary society in 1905 to study and raise money for foreign missions. In 1909, it was renamed the Ladies' Aid an dits prime financial responsibility became the maintenance of the parsonage. Over the years it contributed substantially to the maintenance and improvement of the church building.
