Administrative history

Colebrook United Church in Surrey was initiated through the efforts of the Women's Auxiliary in 1946, leading to the opening of a church building in 1947. The congregation was associated with St. John's United Church (Strawberry Hill) and Sunnyside United Church in the Strawberry Hill Pastoral Charge from 1951 to 1963. Colebrook has remained a separate charge since 1963 and is related to Fraser Presbytery.
