Biographical history

The first Methodist gatherings in the Duncan area were camp meetings that were held at Maple Bay in 1868. In 1869, a Methodist church was built at Maple Bay, part of a Circuit comprising Nanaimo, Somenos, Cowichan and Saltspring Island. This became known as Cowichan and Saltspring Island Circuit. After Saltspring Island became a separate Circuit in 1899, it became the Cowichan Circuit. In 1890, Alderlea Methodist Church was built in Duncan's Station (later known as Duncan). After church union in 1925, the Alderlea Methodist Church merged with St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church (Duncan, B.C.) to form Duncan United Church.
