Topic: "The Missing Link in Presbyterian Guelph: The United Presbyterian Church, 1846-1883"
Guest speaker: Donna Speers
Now long forgotten, the United Presbyterian Church once stood at the corner of Dublin and Cambridge Streets, more or less opposite Central School. This church was founded by disaffected members of St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, the congregation was led by Rev. Torrance.
Donna Speers will share her research on the congregation that worshipped at the church before it was closed, demolished and became one of Guelph's lost buildings.
