The United Church of Canada

On January 13, 1925, the religious congregations throughout Canada voted on the proposed union of Presbyterian and Methodist faiths. The vote was passed and the United Church of Canada was born.

In Sudbury, opposition to the union had grown since the initial discussion of 1915. However, as the motion was passed nationally, Sudbury found itself in possession of two United Churches.

The national union was celebrated at St. Andrew's church on June 10, 1925 by a less than enthusiastic group of parishioners.

The actual logistics of the new United Church were much more difficult to accomplish. Sudbury members could not agree on an implementation date for this new union and in the end, it was agreed that the union was positive in principle, but no official amalgamation date would be set.
