St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church was the Auld Kirk. It was a frame building erected on Fergus Street. Presbyterianism was introduced to the Mount Forest area by Rev. John McMillan, a student missionary at Durham. These early ministers were the typical "Saddle Bag" preachers, either travelling on horseback or on foot. He performed baptisms and marriages, and funerals if he was available and held prayer serices in the homes. In 1856 the Presbyterian church in Mount Forest was organized by Hamilton Presbytery. Before it was fully established, a split in the Presbyterian church occurred and two churches were built, Knox and St Andrew's. Knox Presbyterian Church, Mount Forest later joined the United Church of Canada.
