Biographical history

Silverton was visited by both Methodist and Presbyterian missionaries in the early 1890s. In 1897 Zion Community Church was erected in Silverton for use by all denominations. In 1903, Sandon, Silverton and New Denver were united to form one charge called the New Denver Pastoral Charge. In 1925 after Church Union, Zion Community Church became known as Zion United Church. From 1925 until 1941 Silverton, Sandon and New Denver were part of the New Denver Pastoral Charge. Silverton was part of the Nakusp-New Denver Pastoral Charge from 1942 to 1964. From 1965 to 1984 Silverton was part of the Arrow Lakes-Slocan Pastoral Charge which included Arrow Park, Burton, Edgewood, Nakusp and New Denver. In 1985 Silverton became part of the Kootenay-Slocan Pastoral Charge with New Denver, Kaslo and Procter. Zion United Church continues today to serve the people of Silverton.
