Sebringville Pastoral Charge was formed in 1968 when the Evangelical United Brethen Church joined the United Church of Canada in 1968; it includes Emmanuel United Church in Sebringville and Zion United Church in Rostock. It is still an active pastoral charge of the United Church of Canada.
Emmanuel United Church joined the United Church in 1968 when the Evangelical United Brethren and the United Church of Canada were united. The first Evangelical services in Sebringville to German immigrants took place in 1840. The church constructed there in the 1840s was part of the Evangelical Association Waterloo Mission and later the Huron Mission. By 1883 it was the Sebringville Circuit with preaching places at Sebringville, Fullarton and Stratford. A new church was constructed in the first decade of the twentieth century. In 1946, Emmanuel Evangelical Church became Emmanuel Evangelical United Brethren Church when the Evangelical Church and the Church of the United Brethren joined. Emmanuel United Church closed in 2018.
Zion United Church in Rostock was established in 1968 when the Evangelical United Brethren Church joined the United Church of Canada. Zion Evangelical United Brethren Church in Rostock was established as early as 1864 as part of the Evangelical Association. Rostock was home to German immigrants. The congregation was a preaching place on the Milverton Mission. Zion Evangelical Church was first constructed inand later rebuilt in 1902 and remained in the Milverton Charge until 1968.
