Administrative history

About 1841 the Reverend Mr. Wivell, a Presbyterian minister, visited the Salmon River area near what is now Chipman, Queens County, New Brunswick. By August 1844 a Presbyterian Church had been built at Red Bank under the guidance of the Reverend Mr. Millen. By 1854 membership in the church stood at 45.

In 1876 the Reverend S. Johnson took charge of the congregation. A new church was erected at Salmon Creek and dedicated in 1886. Between 1890 and 1910 the old church at Red Bank was abandoned, and about 1892 a new church was erected within the village of Chipman. In 1925 members of the Chipman church decided to enter the new United Church of Canada.
