Administrative history

Athens United Church was established in 1925, formerly Methodist. It formed part of Athens Pastoral Charge with Glen Elbe (until ca. 1953) and Addison. The charge would change its name to Athens-Addison Pastoral Charge ca. 1987. The charge disbanded and each congregation formed its own single-point charge in 2013. Athens United Church is still an active congregation of the United Church of Canada.

Athens Methodist Circuit was established in 1884 when the Farmersville (Athens) Methodist Episcopal and Wesleyan Methodist joined the Methodist Church Canada; it joined the United Church of Canada in 1925.

Farmersville Methodist Episcopal Church was established in 1842; it joined the Methodist Church Canada in 1884. Farmersville Wesleyan Methodist Circuit was established in 1850; it joined the Methodist Church Canada in 1884.
