The church was formed from the union of Melville Presbyterian Church and the short-lived Bayne Church (or the New Presbyterian Congregation) on April 13, 1870. Bayne Church had been formed on August 19, 1869, and had held its first and last communion in November 1869. In June of 1879 the pulpit of Union Church, which had been occupied by Rev. Richard Bentley since 1871, became vacant. Rev. James A.R. Dickson, who was soon to serve the new united Central Presbyterian Church congregation, was called to Union Church on October 14, 1879. Union joined with St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church to become Central Presbyterian Church on May 18, 1880. The Union Church building was sold to Thomas Hamilton and was "used as a dwelling until destroyed by fire in 1890" (Barrie 1982:33).
