Berrytown Wesleyan enjoys a very rich history in the community. Though the church building was originally built in the 1890’s, the history of the people of the church goes back much farther. Records show that a class was organized in 1860 by the Rev. G. L. Paine. In 1871, a charter was written creating what was known as the North Bradford Wesleyan Methodist Church, Berrytown being the only point left on this charge. For many years the people gathered to worship in the little school house across the way. Under the ministry of the Rev. J. S. French, the present church was constructed, and dedicated on October 14, 1892. Since that time many improvements have been made and a considerable amount of redecorating done.

In 1960, under the ministry of the Rev. Robert Evans, the new Educational Unit was planned. Building and Financial Committees began work, but it was early June 1961, before the actual work was started; and was completed in 1962 under the ministry of Rev. Wallace P. Taylor.

That addition provided a Pastor’s Study and three classrooms upstairs; downstairs there were rest rooms, a kitchen, and a large fellowship room, which was also used for classrooms.
