History of St. Andrew's United Church Westmeath

In 1925 with church union, the Presbyterian Church and the Wesley Methodist Church in Westmeath were united and became part of the United Church of Canada; the congregation of the Presbyterian Church joining with congregation of the Wesley Methodist Church in the former Methodist Church building. Since that time it has been known as St. Andrew’s United Church.

There was not complete agreement with church union in both congregations. Several families of the Methodist Church and two families of the Presbyterian Church did not go along with their church; but left it to become members of the Pentecostal congregation; which later purchased the former Presbyterian Church at the Gore Line and Westmeath Main Street corner. Some Presbyterians remained with the Presbyterian congregation.

In the 1940’s the church building was repaired and redecorated and stained glass memorial windows were installed (see below for more on the stained glass). A building fund was set up in the years between 1957 and 1964. The wood furnace was replaced by an oil furnace and extensive renovations carried on costing $16,166.70.

Several memorials have been placed in the church: a wooden cross placed in the choir loft – donated by Mrs. Eva Grylls; a Bible was presented in 1961 by Eric and Laurine Blackwell in memory of an Uncle; Foster L. Jones; a Baptismal Font presented by Archie and Muriel Blackwell in memory of their son Trevor Blackwell; collection plates in memory of Susan Anderson Bromley were presented by her family in 1964; and two tables in memory of Max Grylls presented by his wife Ray Grylls and daughters. An oak tree was planted in the church property by the congregation to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the United Church of Canada in 1975.

Compiled by Ray Grylls and Frances Hennessy, 1976

The power of Christian prayer Thank You, Lord
Your Holy Spirit enfolds me - making me realize I am not alone. Thank You for Your strength, Your wisdom and the comfort of Your presence. Even in the most agonizing times I have the knowledge that You are there, Lord. When all I can do is whisper Your Name, it is enough. You hear. You care. You understand. My praise and adoration, Lord Jesus. Amen.
