Biographical history

Methodist work in Kitamaat Village began when Charlie Amos built a log church there, after meeting Methodist missionaries in Victoria. Kitamaat became part of the Simpson District. For a time it was served by the "Glad Tidings" mission boat. The first ordained missionary was appointed in 1891. A church was built in 1904, destroyed by fire in 1907, and replaced in 1911. At union, it became a pastoral charge in Prince Rupert Presbytery. Kemano was added as a preaching point in 1963. The church at Kitamaat is now called Haisla United Church.
