Brome Centre Methodist Church - Quebec

Brome Centre Methodist Church

In the early 1800s, itinerant saddlebags preachers held services at a place called “Pulpit Rock”, located on the north side of the road.

It was not until 1909, that Brome Centre Methodist Church, a little wooden building with an attached side tower and open belfry, was built on Centre Road just south of Iron Hill. John Vernal, a local farmer, donated a piece of his farm for the site.

The new church was on a circuit, which included the West Brome Methodist Church, the Iron Hill Union Church and the Brome Congregational Church.

Around 1922, Brome Centre was put in a charge headed by Knowlton, which also included the Brill and Creek churches.

In 1956, the building was sold.
