Dates of existence



Methodist work began in Port Alberni in 1907 and in the following year, property was secured for a church building. The congregation continued to meet in a school house until the new church, First Methodist Church was built and opened in August, 1912. In 1925, First Methodist Church came into church union as First United Church and became part of Victoria Presbytery from 1925 to 1959. Since 1959, it has been within Comox-Nanaimo Presbytery. On December 9, 1962, a new church building was opened and dedicated. In June, 2001, First United Church and St. Andrew's United Church (Port Alberni, B.C.) became one pastoral charge known as Alberni Valley United Church. They maintained the two congregations until they were physically amalgamated in the former First United Church building in April, 2002.
