Portsmouth United Church
The current home of
Cooke's - Portsmouth United Church on Norman
Rogers Drive was dedicated on April 9, 1967.
The new church resulted from the amalgamation of
two historic Kingston congregations in 1964:
Cooke's United Church and Portsmouth United
Church. Both of these congregations originated
in the middle of the 19th century.
Cooke's United Church - established in
Cooke's Presbyterian Church was erected in 1846
as a limestone structure on Brock Street, just
west of Montreal Street in downtown
Kingston. It became Cooke's United Church
at the time of union in 1925. The building was
torn down and on its former site is the Chown
Memorial Parking Garage opposite Hôtel Dieu
The original cornerstone from Cooke's
Presbyterian Church was incorporated into the
foundation of Cooke's - Portsmouth United
Church - established in 1855
Portsmouth Methodist Church was erected in 1855
in the Village of Portsmouth up the hill from
and west of what is now Portsmouth Olympic
Harbour. Early in the 20th century, Portsmouth
Methodist Church developed strong linkages with
a Presbyterian mission in the Village of
Portsmouth and became Portsmouth United Church
at the time of union in 1925.
The Portsmouth United Church was sold in 1965
and still stands as a privately owned building
on King Street West.
