Biographical history

Alfred Cooke was born in Belfast and came to Canada in 1901. He was ordained by the Congregational Church in 1907 and served in Saskatchewan and Ontario before moving to Vancouver, where he served at Kitsilano Congregational Church (1912-1915), First Congregational (1915-1925), and St. John's United Church (1936-1950). He later served at St. Stephen's United Church in Parksville, until retiring in 1954. Cooke wrote and spoke extensively on social and religious issues, was very active in the Vancouver Ministerial Association, and began the first church-owned radio station in Canada.
