Administrative history

Knox Presbyterian Church in Walkerton, Ontario was formed in 1886 from the amalgamation of Free St. John's Church and St. Paul's Church, both in the Walkerton area. Free St. John's Presbyterian Church was established in 1851 within the United Presbyterian Church, while St. Paul's Presbyterian Church was established in 1873 within the Presbyterian Church in Canada in Connection with the Church of Scotland. Both became part of The Presbyterian Church in Canada in 1875, and their desire to amalgamate was approved in 1886. The amalgamated congregation took the name Knox Presbyterian Church and continued to worship out of the Free St. John's building. The St. Paul's building was sold to the Methodists. In 1925, the congregation voted to remain within The Presbyterian Church in Canada.
