Archives Recipe of the Month

There’s always something about the onset of cold weather that causes me to obsessively think about sweet breads and since you poor souls are subject to the whims of my appetite on these postings, now you can think about sweet breads too! These recipes were found in a book put out by St. Matthew’s United Church Adult Group in Halifax, Nova Scotia, in 1971. The cover was too colorful and fun not to...

The construction of Pilgrim Congregational Church

The construction of Pilgrim Congregational Church

As many of you may know from personal experience, constructing a new church building can be quite a long process. This was the case in 1890 when the Congregational congregation at Brooklyn, Nova Scotia decided to begin work on a new building to replace the building they had been worshiping in since 1852. Minutes from a January 1890 meeting tell us that the Building Committee was in the process of deciding on an architect to draw up plans for the new building. A few years later in 1894, there was enough progress on the building that the...

Archives Recipe of the Month

These recipes were found in some records of Great Village Pastoral Charge, Truro Presbytery (St. James United Church in Great Village was closed in 2014). Perhaps these recipes were intended for a future cookbook but in any case they look delicious! Free of charge, I have a complete supper menu for you. For starters, I’m sure the Scotch soup and brown bread would be a big hit on a cold day. Next on to the main course of Yorkshire Steak. I can’t say I’ve tried it before but it already gets lots of points for looking easy to...

History of First South United Church

Posted by on Oct 10, 2017 in Archives Committee, Featured Congregations | 0 comments

In the early part of the 19th century, Methodists and Lutherans in First South Church worshipped in the school house. Early names for the community of First South were South Range and Upper South. The new First South Methodist Church was officially dedicated on 25 March 1888. In 1925, the First South Methodist congregation joined The United Church of Canada and became First South United Church. At this time it was part of the Lunenburg Pastoral Charge which also contained the appointment of Central United Church. First South United Church...
