Wellington County Methodists 1825-1925
 

Cumnock Methodist Church

The Cumnock Methodist Church stood on the southeast corner of Lot 1 Con 15 of Nichol Township.

Arthur Walker Wright stated concerning the Methodist Church at Cumnock, "We are indebted to an unknown source, through E.B. Randall, for the following interesting sketch, dated December 6th, 1932".

The Cumnock Methodist Church was built in the year 1877, closed in 1924. Previous to that time, services were held in what was known as the Jackson School on the 6th concession of Peel Tp., the ministers coming from Arthur to preach. Mr. Lyons was Sunday School Superintendent for years there. Then it was decided that a church should be built, and after much consideration a site was chosen in what was then Upper Cumnock, Rev. William Mills being the first minister

Three years was the usual time for a Methodist minister to remain in one place. It will be easy to see that we had a great many changes in the forth-seven years of service, some remaining for only one year.
