Church was served from Wiarton until is received its own minister in 1892.

The women of the Church formed a missionary society in 1905 to study and raise money for foreign missions; it was renamed Ladies' Aid Society in 1909. After that time, its prime financial responsibility became the maintenance of the parsonage. Over the years, it contributed substantially to the maintenance and improvement of the church building.
