Description
Church building.
Heritage Value
This Baptist congregation originally held services in a tent at the corner of McGregor Avenue and Portland but they soon were able to build a small church. A membership drive by Pastor Arthur James Bowbrick (1875-1961) was so successful that the congregation was able build this fine structure, prominently located at the corner of Victory Street. Although it has been altered with later additions and stucco over the original siding, the original windows and the rooftop belfry remain.

History/Biography
Master cabinet maker Arthur Davis and his wife Nellie (Chard) Davis emigrated from England, and settled in South Burnaby ca. 1912. They built a house on Rumble Road, two doors down from Nelson Avenue School. Arthur and Nellie had five children, Arthur Jr., Alec, Mildred, Robert and (Jean) Muriel Davis born in 1920. Arthur Sr. built five more family homes over a twenty-year period, all within the Imperial-Royal Oak area. (Jean) Muriel attended Nelson Avenue School, and later Burnaby South High School. At the age of four, Muriel’s mother Nellie started her on lessons that went on for fifteen years. These lessons included dance, drama, piano, singing, choir practice and bagpipes. The family also attended Alta Vista Baptist Church. Alec Davis died of an illness in 1940. (Jean) Muriel later married pilot officer Gordon Skelhorne and went by Jean Shelhorne. Gordon studied medicine, becoming a family doctor. Jean (Muriel) received a Masters in Education and worked as an adult educator and counsellor. They had two children together, a daughter and a son. The son died in adolescence, the daughter now has a son of her own. Jean and Gordon Skelhorne moved from Burnaby to Mississauga, Ontario ca. 1963.
