Biographical history

Vickers Heights United Church existed in the Ontario community of Port Arthur, now known as Thunder Bay, from 1956 to 1970. The congregation was first established in 1937, after it was noted in the Superior Presbytery minutes that a group of United Church families living in Vickers Heights had no religious service available to them. Presbytery requested that church services and activities be provided to the community in February of 1944. The services were initially held every other Sunday except for the summer months, when no church services were held. It was officially authorized as a congregation on May 8, 1956 under the oversight of First United Church. Fourth Avenue United Church was moved to the corner of Glendale and Broadway in August of 1961 and officially re-opened as Vickers Heights United Church in November of 1961. It was originally part of a three-point charge that also included Slate River and Pinegrove, but was later changed to a three - point charge that included Broadway and Pinegrove. In 1967, the field was altered again to include Pinegrove, Slate River, Murillo, Kakabecka Falls, Hymers and South Gillis with preaching points at Pinegrove, Kakabecka Falls and Hymers. On July 1, 1970, the congregation of Vickers Heights United amalgamated with Broadway United after the closure of Vickers Heights church. The property was sold in 1971.
