The formation of the United Church of Canada on June 10th, 1925 marked a significant event, bringing together the Congregational, Methodist, and Presbyterian Churches. However, this union caused division among the members of St. Paul’s congregation in Fredericton. While some chose to embrace the United Church, a substantial number decided against it, leading to the establishment of a separate congregation. They constructed a new edifice called St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church to serve their spiritual needs.
St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, erected in 1927-28, stands as a striking example of Late Gothic Revival architecture. The distinguished brick structure was designed by Alward & Gillies, an architectural firm based in Saint John. Adorned with skillfully crafted stone details, the church boasts numerous stained glass memorial windows that add a touch of elegance and reverence to the interior. A robust bell tower, featuring ornate windows and louvers, crowns the edifice with grandeur.
