Histoire administrative

A pastoral charge is a grouping of churches termed "preaching points" -- each with separate names and governing boards or sessions. These churches are served by one minister. The pastoral charge title usually reflects the breadth of the geographic area encompassing the charge.

The Mapleton Methodist congregation came into being in 1816 when George Harrison, a layman, began holding regular services in the community. The congregation met in a school house until a new church was erected in 1855-1856. The church was built by Thomas Johnson and dedicated on 15 February 1857.

Mapleton is located in Cumberland County, Nova Scotia. The town was originally known as Maccan Mountain but the name was changed to Mapleton in 1789. Mapleton was part of the Southampton Methodist Circuit and after the union which created The United Church of Canada in 1925, it became part of the Southampton Pastoral Charge. From 1976-2000, Southampton and Mapleton were known as Pioneer Pastoral Charge. In 2002, the churches separated to form individual pastoral charges. Mapleton Pastoral Charge has one preaching point: Mapleton United Church.
