Biographical history

Church work began as the Mission of St. John the Divine, Chilcotin in 1916 with headquarters at Beaver Ranch, Hanceville under the auspices of St. John the Divine Parish, Kennington, England. The mission work lapsed in 1919 and was reopened in 1926 with headquarters at Williams Lake. The smaller outstations were grouped into the Central Cariboo Mission (also called Chilcotin Mission), with headquarters at St. Luke, Alexis Creek, from about 1963 to 1975. The parish currently includes the Alexis Creek congregation.
