Protestantism came to the Miramichi between 1765 and 1800 with the arrival of Scottish Immigrants. The first Presbyterian Church on the river was established at Wilson’s Point after 1792. The first Minister was the Rev. John Urquhart, who held services on alternate Sundays at Wilson’s Point and a second church at Moorfield. Rev. Urquhart drowned in 1814 while crossing the Miramichi River.
