Amherst: Trinity-St. Stephen’s Pastoral Charge

Posted by on Feb 19, 2013 in Archives Committee, Featured Congregations | Comments Off on Amherst: Trinity-St. Stephen’s Pastoral Charge

Amherst: Trinity-St. Stephen’s Pastoral Charge

Methodists had been active in the Amherst-Point de Bute-Sackville area since the 1780s. After a building built for Baptists was opened in 1819, the Methodist congregation worshiped here but then moved to the Court House in 1824. In these early years Amherst was part of the vast Parrsboro Maccan Circuit. It was not until 1841 when the first Methodist church was erected in Amherst. Amherst became the head of a Methodist circuit in 1847. In 1874 the present site for a new Methodist church was purchased from C.E. Ratchford, and in 1876, a building...
