HUDDERSFIELD: Huddersfield-George Street Congregational Church History up to 1868.



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.
