Dates of existence


The earliest Methodist work in the Hedley area began when services by the minister from Keremeos were held beginning in 1891. In 1904, Grace Methodist Church in Hedley was opened. Until church union in 1925, Hedley was reported separately, but was supplied with their clergy from Keremeos. Presbyterian work in the Hedley area was carried on from Princeton (1902), and later from Keremeos (1906). The Presbyterians and Methodists worked closely together in Hedley, and Hedley was constituted as a Union congregation in 1923. A church was built at Keremeos in 1908 and was used cooperatively. After Church Union, the Keremeos Pastoral Charge included Hedley, Keremeos, Cawston, and various other points in the district. In 1985, the Keremeos Pastoral Charge (including Grace United, Hedley) became a part of the Keremeos Ecumenical Parish, a shared ministry with the Anglican Church. Grace United Church, Hedley is a part of the Kamloops-Okanagan Presbytery.
