Biographical history

One of the first Presbyterian churches in Surrey District Municipality, the Mud Bay Presbyterian Church was built in 1885 and eventually formed part of a charge which included Cloverdale and Tynehead -- the Presbyterian church in Cloverdale being built later in 1891. This church building was also used at one point for Methodist services. In 1925 the Methodist and Presbyterian churches in Cloverdale united. By 1930 the Mud Bay church was called Elgin United Church and existed as a congregation in the Cloverdale Pastoral Charge until at least 1952. In 1966 the church building was torn down.
