    • Knox United Church

      Begun: 1842

      Prior to 1842, Ayr members of St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church in Galt had been meeting in a log schoolhouse on Piper Street in Ayr. The congregation decided on February 17, 1842 to build a church, which was completed and dedicated on June 1, 1843. When the Synod of the (Free) Presbyterian Church of Canada was formed in 1844 following the break with the Presbyterian Church in Canada in Connection with the Church of Scotland, the congregation joined with the former organization and became known as the Free Church. It is of interest that Rev. John Bayne of Galt, who was considered the founder of the Free Church in Canada, inducted the first elders at the Ayr Free Church. Early ministers were Revs. Robert Lindsay (1849-1854) and Duncan McRuer (1854-). With the union of all Presbyterian churches in Canada in 1875 both Knox and Stanley Street churches became part of the Presbyterian Church in Canada.

      The present church was built in 1887 and was opened for worship on October 9, 1888. This church was joined by Stanley Street Presbyterian Church on May 31, 1914 with the name of Knox United Presbyterian Church; it was then joined by the former Ayr Methodist Church on June 6, 1926 to become Knox United Church.1a
