Toward the end of the 19th century and early in the 20th century many Ukrainians emigrated to North America. An Independent Ukrainian Orthodox Church was founded in close cooperation with the Presbyterian Church of Canada. It only lasted for a few years (1903-1912). Most of its members joined the Presbyterian Church of Canada. On August 20, 1911, the first Ukrainian Presbyterian Congregation was opened in Edmonton. In 1922 the Ukrainian Evangelical Alliance in North America was established in Rochester, NY. Efforts were made to send a group of preachers to western Ukraine, which was then occupied by Poland. They succeeded in establishing an Ukrainian Evangelical Reformed Church. Ukrainian students were trained in Bloomfield Seminary, which had an Ukrainian department from 1913 to 1931. The church in western Ukraine grew. In 1936 there were 2,780 members in 35 congregations, served by 5 pastors and 8 preachers. World War II and the Soviet occupation of western Ukraine destroyed much of the work. After the change in 1989 the church was able to reconstitute itself.

Note: We did not manage to contact this church. Therefore, we cannot exclude that its address has changed or that the church does not exist any more.
Whoever has information about this church may contact us. We will be happy to update our information.
