Administrative history

The Oakland United Church Pastoral Charge was formed in 1984 in the Humber Presbytery, Newfoundland and Labrador Conference of the United Church of Canada.

The first organized church work had begun in the Country Road area in 1956, when a Sunday school was organized in the local school building. In 1958, the First United Church opened the Oakland House as a Sunday school facility. Other church-related organizations soon formed at the facility, including a woman's association, a junior choir, an Explorer Group, and a Cub pack. By 1959, worship services were being held there. The Oakland Church opened in 1965 as a preaching station of the First United Church Pastoral Charge.
