Biographical history

In 1950, Renfrew Heights United Church was organized as a preaching point within Renfrew Pastoral Charge. In January 1952, a meeting took place to initiate the Renfrew Heights congregation as a separate congregation, and as the first church development of the new Metropolitan Council for Church Extension. Architectural sketches were produced and approved and a Building Committee was organized. The congregation decided to name the new church Sanford Memorial United Church to honour the memory of two pioneer ministers in British Columbia, Albert M. Sanford and Osbert M. Sanford. The building was dedicated on November 15th 1952. Sanford Memorial United Church was closed on June 30th 1967.
