Name of creator
Cochenour United Church has existed in the Ontario community of Cochenour, 170 km north of Vermilion Bay in the Corporation of the Municipality of Red Lake, since 1951. The congregation was founded 20 years earlier as part of the Red Lake charge. The Cochenour United Church building is a former bunkhouse of the Orlac mine moved from the Cochenour mine site in 1951. Rev. J. Freeman was the first minister to preach in the new church. In 1955, the Red Lake charge was split up and a new charge known as Chukini, consisting of McKenzie Island, Cottage Cove, Cochenour and Balmertown, was created. Cottage Cove was removed from the charge in 1957, followed by McKenzie Island in 1960. In 1968, Ear Falls was added to the charge. The Chukuni charge became a co-operative ministry at Ear Falls with the Anglican Church in 1972. In 1975, one minister was posted at Ear Falls with the co-operative ministry and one minister was appointed for the Red Lake and Cochenour community. Since 1996, the Red Lake Pastoral charge has also been a shared ministry with the Anglican Church, as part of the Cambrian Presbytery.
The records of Cochenour United Church came to The United Church of Canada Archives-Conference of Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario as part of a transfer of records from the Red Lake Pastoral charge in 2000.
