    Administrative history

    Knox Presbyterian Church in Ripley, Ontario, was formed in 1925 by those members of St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church (est. c.1856 and formerly called Knox Presbyterian Church) that voted against joining the United Church of Canada. The congregation worshipped in the Township Hall for a time before purchasing the old Knox Presbyterian Church from the United Church. The first settled minister was the Rev. Dr. George Connors, who was inducted on Feb. 14, 1927. In that year, the congregation also built a Sunday School Hall. In 1938, the Ripley and Ashfield congregations were linked together as a two-point charge.
