Huddersfield, George Street (Congregational)

This church owes its origin to the labours of the Rev. J.H. Rutherford, and other ministers of the Evangelical Union of Scotland ; and though Independent in its principles, is not formally connected with the Congregational churches of the town or Riding.

The pastors have been —

  • Rev. S. Chisholm (Glasgow E.U.), from Scotland. He removed to Chapel Street, Salford.
  • Rev. R. Stainton, from Windermere. He removed to Garden Street, Sheffield.
  • Rev. W. Halliday (Edin. Un.) occupied the pulpit for a few months in 1866.
  • 1868. Rev. D. Black, from Middlesborough, has recently accepted a call to the pastorate.
