Biographical history

Seymour Pastoral Charge was established in 1925, formerly Seymour East Methodist Circuit and Seymour Methodist Circuit. Seymour Pastoral Charge included Tabernacle United Church (English Line, Ont.), Zion United Church (Petherick's Corners, Ont.), and Stephen's United Church (Hoards Station, Ont.). In 1968 it amalgamated with Campbellford Pastoral Charge to form Campbellford-Seymour Pastoral Charge, which added Stanwood United Church (Ont.). The two pastoral charges again separated in 1975 to form Seymour Pastoral Charge, which retained Stanwood United Church (Ont.) and Campbellford Pastoral Charge, which became a single-point charge for St. John's United Church (Campbellford, Ont.). Seymour Pastoral Charge became a single point charge in 2016 at Seymour United Church (Hoards Station, Ont.).

In 1956 a new, bigger building was contructed and the church was re-dedicated as Hoards United Church. In 2016, the church was again renamed as Seymour United Church (Hoards Station, Ont.).
