The Esquimalt Indian Mission was founded on May 31, 1911 (as Esquimalt Naval and Military Methodist Church). It was located at Jones’ Studio on Esquimalt Road. The first church service was officially held in June 1911. A year later, the property for the church was bought at the corner of Admirals Road and Lyall Street, and was dedicated in 1913, by Rev. Dr. W.J. Sipprell. At one point the church had a congregation of 200 members, and Sunday school was held in the Methodist Soldiers Home. The mission became a United Church mission at church union in 1925. A new Christian Education Hall was dedicated on March 27, 1965.
