Building    From 1716 

Old Meeting Congregational Church - Uxbridge

Categories: Religion

The Old Meeting Congregational Church was founded in the 1660s, but meetings were held in the homes of members until 1716 when their first meeting house was erected. Thomas Ebenezer Beasley was the minister of the church 1790-1824. The Rev. William Walford officiated here from 1837/8.

"The congregation was never very large and in 1962 it merged with the Providence Congregational Church to form the Uxbridge United Church and in 1972, the Congregational and Methodist churches amalgamated into Christ Church and the building in Beasley’s Yard was no longer needed as a church, but is now used for community purposes and has been renamed Watts Hall, in honour of Isaac Watts, the hymn writer."
