Ministers and Churches of Stellarton
St. John's Church was organized in connection with
the Kirk body. It was an offshoot from St. Andrew's Church, New
Glasgow. Rev. Wm. M. Phillips was the first minister, inducted in
1863. In 1871, Rev. Chas. A. Dunn was settled over the congregation.
He was followed by Rev. E. H. Burgess and Rev. D. M. Matheson. Rev.
W. L. Cunningham, the present minister was inducted in 1908.
Sharon Church is a child of old St. James' Church, New Glasgow. The
original Sharon Church was built on the banks of the River, near Dr.
Donnelly's house. On the 5th of June, 1856, Rev. A. J. Mowatt, D.D.,
was settled as the first pastor of the church. Wm. McPherson was the
father of the session of Sharon Church. He opened the first
Presbyterian Sunday School when there were only eight scholars; and
afterwards became the first Superintendent of the Sunday School. Dr.
Mowatt was followed by Rev. Thos. Cumming, D.D. who served the
church for ten years, 1875-1885. The Church was fortunate in having
such able and eloquent ministers at its beginning. Rev. J. H.
Turnbull was pastor another ten years, 1885-1895. Rev. Wm. M. Tufts,
B.D., became the fourth pastor in 1896, remaining twelve years. Rev.
M. S. Fulton was ordained 1909, and resigned in 1913. The present
pastor is the Rev. C. C. McIntosh, B.A., inducted 1913.
