Administrative history

The post-war migration of veterans and their families to Vancouver's suburbs led to a large population growth in the Surrey district of Fleetwood. On February 15, 1951 a group of 23 women met to discuss the possibility of organizing a United Church congregation in Fleetwood. The first regular service of the United Church in Fleetwood in Port Kells pastoral charge was held in Fleetwood Community Hall on Palm Sunday, 1951. Work proceeded on a church building, which was dedicated in opening services on January 14, 1955. The church mortgage was completely paid off in December 1966. In October 1976, Fleetwood Memorial United Church started on a building program to provide a multi-purpose building to be used for both congregation and community activities. In November 1993 Fleetwood church members voted to begin negotiations with North Surrey United Church toward building a regional church. The amalgamation was completed in 1994 and the new congregation and pastoral charge of Northwood was created.
