Name of creator
St. Oswald's, Port Kells opened ca. 1911 in connection with the new parish of St. Helen's, South Westminster. By 1921 and until 1932 Port Kells was served from the parish of Langley. During the remainder of the 1930's the congregation was connected again with St. Helen's, South Westminster together with Cloverdale and Latimer Heights. By the 1940's and until 1960 Port Kells was incorporated into the parish of North Surrey (renamed parish of Mid-Surrey in 1959) which included Cloverdale, Surrey Centre and Latimer Heights. By 1961 the parish of Mid-Surrey had been subdivided into three, leaving Port Kells paired with the Church of the Good Shepherd, Latimer Heights. The latter closed in 1964 while Port Kells was transferred to the care of St. George's, Fort Langley. By 1973 it was associated with the Church of the Redeemer, Cloverdale which in 1973 amalgamated with Christ Church, Surrey Centre. St. Oswald's continued as part of this new entity until 1988 when it received its own incumbent.
