Biographical history

Quadra Island United Church began as Cape Mudge Indian Mission. Methodist religious services began in the area as early as 1891 however, it was not until 1919 that Cape Mudge received its first resident ordained minister. The minister opened the Indian Mission with a vessel called the Iwyll. Initially the Mission had responsibility for Cape Mudge, Campbell River and surrounding communities in the area under the Methodist Church of Canada. The United Church continued the Mission after church union in 1925. In 1937 marine work out of Cape Mudge was closed and no church owned boat was used there again until 1948 when the vessel Robert C. Scott I was brought into service. In 1959 Cape Mudge Indian Mission was renamed Quadra Island United Church.
