Administrative history

Bath - Morven Pastoral Charge was formed in 1925 as Bath Pastoral Charge, formerly Methodist. The charge originally included Bath, Beulah Church in Ernestown Township, Hawley (until ca. 1966) and Union Church in Ernestown Station (until ca. 1958). From ca. 1967-1981, United Empire Loyalist Memorial Church in Adolphustown Township and Conway joined the charge from Adolphustown Pastoral Charge. Morven United Church, previously from Deseronto Pastoral Charge, also joined the charge ca. 1967. From 1981 it was a three-point charge until Beulah Church closed on June 30, 2002. The charge was then renamed Bath-Morven Pastoral Charge; it is still an active pastoral charge of the United Church of Canada.
