The congregation of St. Paul's was formally organized in 1879. The first church was a frame building erected at No. 590 Gould Street. In 1891 the people of the Presbyterian and Congregationalist churches federated, using one building, one minister, and working together. They resolved to build a church large enough to allow the united congregations to worship as one. The cornerstone was laid in 1891. The church they built was this one. It continues to serve the people of St. Paul's and the Wiarton area today. (See A Brief History for more information.)

We are a friendly, caring community of people committed to J.O.Y. - Jesus, Others and You. Visitors are always welcome. Come! Be one with us on Sunday morning and enjoy fellowship over coffee in the Church Hall after the service.
