Biographical history

Niverville Presbyterian Church began as a mission field in the late 1870's served by the Rev. Alexander McFarlane from Clearspring. Once Niverville received its own student minister, services were held in a small log house until they moved into the new schoolhouse in 1885. In 1891, Union Point, Royal (later known as Glenlea), and Niverville joined together as one charge. By 1905, the three-point charge now included Niverville, Glenlea and Grand Pointe. Niverville Presbyterian Church was built in 1907 and officially opened October 18 of that year. Around 1910, St. Nicholas (Otterburne West) joined the charge. Eventually services were discontinued at Glenlea and Grand Point and by 1914, Niverville was a one-point charge. Union Point joined Niverville with Avonlea in 1922. In 1925, the congregation officially joined The United Church of Canada to become Niverville United Church.
