Churches In Harvey Rural Community

First Services in Harvey

The first church services were held in the original Taylor Hall over the Taylor Store. The only church nearby was the Presbyterian Church in Manners Sutton site of the present St. Andrew’s United Church of Canada. The Ladies Sewing Circle, The Society of The Sons of Temperance and the Christian Endeavor Society all met in the Taylor Hall. At the time Sunday Evening Services were held every two weeks. Their common desire was to build a Church in Harvey Village.
