    Administrative history

    Zion United Church was established in 1925 with the union of Zion Presbyterian Church (founded 1892) and Ashcroft Methodist Church (founded 1897). From 1954 to 1958, the Charge included St. Andrew's United Church (Lillooet, B.C.) and was known as the Ashcroft-Lillooet Pastoral Charge. Congregations which are now closed, but which formerly were part of the Charge, are St. John's (Clinton, B.C., 1925-2011); Spences Bridge (1926-1977); Walhachin (1929-1959); and Cache Creek (1958-1973). Keefers, Savona, and North Bend were also points of the original Ashcroft Pastoral Charge. Since 2011, Ashcroft has been a single point charge.
