Administrative history

First United Church in Salmon Arm was formed when the congregations of St. Andrew's United Church and Wesley United Church amalgamated in 1926. Before church union in 1925 these two congregations had been Presbyterian and Methodist congregations respectively. The Presbyterians had Salmon Arm as a regular field from ca. 1899, a field which included points at Canoe Creek (now Canoe), Carlin, Notch Hill, Tappen and others besides St. Andrew's church in Salmon Arm. In 1911 St. Andrew's became a separate charge. The first Methodist services were held in Salmon Arm as early as 1888 as part of the Revelstoke and Donald Mission. In 1890 the Salmon Arm Mission was established which included points at the Valley Church, Canoe Creek, Notch Hill, Tappen, Silver Creek and others. The Wesley Methodist Church was built ca. 1908 in Salmon Arm. After 1926 the Salmon Arm Pastoral Charge included at various times other preaching points, notably Canoe. First United and Canoe became separate pastoral charges in 2009.
