OUR HISTORY

Fleetwood Gospel Hall

After the Yale Wagon Road (now Old Yale Road) opened in the late 19th century, farming, logging and fishing became the primary industries of the new settlers. Around 1917, a resident of the area, Mr. Tom Fleetwood, joined the 47th Battalion of the Canadian Expeditional Forces and was sent to France to fight in World War I, where he gave his life in one of the battles. Shortly thereafter, his sister applied to the provincial government for a charter to name her community after her brother. A life size bronze statue of Thomas Fleetwood is located at the Fleetwood Community Centre today.

In 1966, a group of believers wished to gather children from the community in order to teach them from the Bible. A two storey building on Hjorth Road (now 104 Ave & 156 St) was rented in 1966 for this purpose. A good number of children and adults attended this Gospel outreach for about two years. Then, a one acre parcel of land was purchased at 8725 - 158 Street(map) and a building was erected.

In 2017 the old building was removed, and with the Lord's help a new structure was built in its place. There has been an active congregation here for over 40 years and we invite you to join us for our services.
