Dates of existence

Incorporated 1832


St. Paul's Presbyterian Church of Fredericton, New Brunswick was incorporated in 1832 to serve the growing number of Presbyterians in the community. Construction of the building began about 1828 and was completed in 1830. In 1843, the Disruption in the Church of Scotland was felt among St. Paul's congregation when the Free Kirkers left the church, remaining separated until 1874. In 1886 a new church building was constructed on the corner of George and York streets to serve the enlarged congregation. During the debate over church union in the 1920s, most of the members of St. Paul's congregation voted to join the new United Church of Canada. Some members of St. Paul's, however, desired to remain within the Presbyterian Church and formed St. Andrews Presbyterian Church, building a new church on Charlotte Street.
