Administrative history

Methodist mission work among the Chinese population of Victoria began in 1868, when services were held in an unused bar room at the corner of Government and Herald Streets. The church also opened a night school. As work grew, the Sanford Mission (named after a donor) was established at Government and Fisgard Streets, where daily classes and Sunday services were held. A new structure was built on Fisgard Street ca. 1890. The work of the congregation was closely connected with the activities of the Oriental Home and School. The United Church Year Book last records the existence of the congregation in 1965.
