Title
Montreal's Oldest Black Congregation: Union Church, 3007 Delisle Street
Abstract
In July 1907, a group of Montreal Black railway porters and their wives (founding members of the Coloured Women's Club) convened a meeting to consider establishing their own church. As a result of this meeting, a group of twenty-six people worshipped together for the first time as the Union Congregational Church on September 1, 1907. The Union Church moved to Delisle Street, corner Atwater, in 1917. In 1925, Union Congregational Church was a part of the amalgamation of many Presbyterian, Congregationalist and Methodist churches that became the United Church of Canada.
