Biographical history

Cranbrook Methodist Church was founded in 1899, becoming Cranbrook United Church in 1925. A number of Presbyterian members joined the Methodists in union, but the local Presbyterian congregation voted to remain outside the new union. Cranbrook United Church has continued to the present as a congregation and pastoral charge in Kootenay Presbytery.
