  • History
    We have virtually no record of any Presbyterian activity in the period between Mr McIntosh s visit and the Summer of 1849 when the Rev Thomas Lowry came to the area Presbyterian activity is noted from time to time in the Barrie Magnet the local newspaper in 1847 and 1848 with the fledgling congregation using the facilities of the Wesleyan Methodist Church now Collier Street United The redoubtable Dr Robert Burns Professor of Church History at Knox College is noted as preaching in Barrie during this time In the summer of 1849 the Free Synod received a number of Ordained Missionaries from the Synod of Ulster Presbyterian Church of Ireland and one of them the Rev Thomas Lowry was sent to this area In October 1849 the Presbyterians in Barrie and Innisfil petitioned the Presbytery of Toronto for a continuation of Mr Lowry s services among them The Presbytery was sufficiently impressed by this to erect Barrie and Innisfil into a single Pastoral Charge with Mr Lowry as minister On the 16th of January 1850 Mr Lowry was Inducted into the Innisfil part of the charge at the Sixth Line Church The following day 17th in a service held in the Wesleyan Methodist Church Mr Lowry was formally inducted into the Barrie part of the charge Dr Burns presided at both services During this period the Hon J C Morrison donated lot 68 on the north side of Collier Street east of Clapperton to the congregation for a site for a church and manse The Blake and Collingwood lots were subsequently sold by the Trustees In addition to the Blake and Collingwood Streets lots the Presbyterians also received a Government Grant of land in the general area of St Vincent and Duckworth Streets and used this property to establish a cemetery This is shown on old plans of Barrie as The Scotch Burying Ground While the Crown Patent was not issued until 1850 it is believed that the property was used for burials right from the mid 1840 s The site with the exception of one grave was cleared in 1906 The remains were exhumed and re interred in the Barrie Union Cemetery and the site sold by the Trustees The one remaining grave belonging to the Summers family is still there now in the backyard of a home on St Vincent Street Also in 1850 plans were drawn up for a church building with the agreement and specifications that are among our records being signed by the Trustees and the builder It would appear that this building was opened for worship in November 1850 By 1880 this building had become too small and in 1882 land at the corner of Owen and Worsley Streets was purchased and our present building erected The opening services were held on Sunday the 25th of February 1883 with the Rev Principal George Grant of Queen s University as guest preacher This building has served us now for one hundred and twenty three years
