Also see . . . First Moncton United Baptist Church History. Following evangelistic meetings at the Free Meeting House led by Elder Joseph Crandall, a group of converts came together and organized the Moncton Baptized Church of Christ at the Free Meeting House on June 8, 1828. The church later became First Moncton United Baptist Church and is the oldest continuing Protestant congregation in the city. The growing congregation built their own House of Worship at Church and Queen Streets and moved to their new church in 1857.
