YORK UNITED MINISTRIES (YUM):

York Pines United Church was opened in 1966.
Three King Township village churches came together to form a new congregation. These founding churches were
Kettleby (1841-1966); Pottageville (1853-1966),
and Snowball (1856 – 1966). While originally Methodist, they joined with Presbyterian and Congregational Churches in 1925 to form the United Church of Canada. The new building was built on the north side of the Aurora-Lloydtown road east of Highway 400, on land donated by the Macdonald family. The early congregation was a mix of local farm families with deep roots in the community and newcomers who had made a choice to move to the pastoral setting of King Township. In 2016 the congregation embarked on a year long celebration of our 50th anniversary in the current location which included a reunion of many former members and the opening of the original time capsule.
