History

Lenoon K. McIlwaine came from Ireland to Truro in April 1930 to preach the Gospel and spent the rest of his long life in fruitful pioneer work. He was largely responsible for open­ing up the southern part of the Province to the Gospel, as far as assembly testimony is concerned. Through his and others’ efforts, two assemblies were planted in Lunenburg County – the West Clifford Assembly and the Nineveh Assembly. Mr. McIlwaine moved after a time to Clementsvale, Annapolis County, in the west­ern part of Nova Scotia, where an assembly was established and the Clementsvale Gospel Hall was erected. The assembly carries on today.
