Arthur Methodist Church was completed in 1894, the church was originally built for worship for the Methodist denomination, before the formation of the United Church Of Canada. The original manse was located on Tucker Street, purchased in the 1890’s. In 1925 Arthur Methodist Church became a part of the United Church of Canada, becoming Arthur United Church. In the 1970’s a new manse was built on Walton St. that is still occupied by our current minister today. Over time many changes came to be within the church, this included new heating systems, electrical upgrades and a sound system.
There were originally 2 furnaces to heat the building, one for coal and one for wood. (Hence the two chimneys)
There was originally a large chandelier in the middle of the sanctuary, lit by oil lamps for evening services.
A door for a balcony that was never actually a reality still exists in the bell tower of the church.
Arthur United Church is a dynamic and historic congregation in the town of Arthur.
Every week, the congregation gathers for worship, prayer, study, service and fellowship.
You are welcome to join us for our weekly worship service on Sunday morning at 10:30 am;
or for any of the other events and activities that take place in the congregation.
We look forward to meeting you!
