  • Corporate body
  • 1925-1960

Alma United Church existed in the Manitoba community of Alma, in the Rural Municipality of Strathcona, from 1925 to 1960. It was previously a Presbyterian congregation with services held in the local schoolhouse. Alma United Church was linked with Belmont beginning at Union in 1925 with Rev. H. Wallace presiding, and was later joined by Hilton. Services were discontinued in 1960, and it no longer appears in the records after 1968. It is presumed that the congregation transferred its membership tothe Belmont United Church. The Alma United Church Women continued, however, as a branch of Belmont United church until the 1970s.

Alonsa United Church

  • Corporate body
  • 1938-2006

The Alonsa United Church, located in the Manitoban community of Alonsa, northeast of McCreary, was first opened 14 August 1938 and dedicated later that year on 21 October by Reverend J. MacKenzie and Reverend C. King. Alonsa was initially in a field with Birdina, Bluff Creek and Geddes. Student ministers were responsible for worship. During the late 1940s, the United Church in Alonsa acted co-operatively with the local Anglican congregation. In 1957, Alonsa joined with Glenella before becoming a point on the Langruth charge with Amaranth. In 1963, the Plumas-Lakeshore Pastoral charge was formed with points at Alonsa, Amaranth, Langruth and Plumas. Glenella was added in 1970. In 1982, the field was reorganized and split into two. The Plumas charge consisted of Plumas and Glenella, while the remaining three congregations, Alonsa, Amaranth and Langruth formed the Lakeshore charge. In 1993 Alonsa joined with Kelwood and McCreary to form the Alonsa/Kelwood/McCreary Pastoral Charge in Agassiz Presbytery. Alonsa United Church closed in 2006 and the church was sold to the local museum later that year.

Alpha Omega Women's Alumnae

  • Corporate body
  • 1958-

The Alpha Omega Alumnae, an organization of women university graduates of Ukrainian descent, was founded in 1958 by a small group of twelve women with a desire to promote and foster Ukrainian cultural activities within the broader community. The organization has focused on promoting the work of amateur and professional artists of Ukrainian origin. The visual and performing arts have been supported with art exhibitions, musicals, recitals, lectures and readings by published authors. In the 1960s, in collaboration with the Winnipeg Art Gallery, the Alumnae sponsored a major show of the works of internationally known sculptor Alexander Archipenko. This was followed by a show of the art of William Kurelek. Interest in contemporary literature led, in 1978, to a Canada-wide writing competition which called for stories based on experiences of "Ukrainian Life in Canada". In celebration of Winnipeg's Centennial, the Alumnae honoured those women of Ukrainian descent who had graduated from the University of Manitoba prior to 1940. This resulted in a publication entitled The Beginnings: Ukrainian Women Graduates, University of Manitoba. In 2008, the Alumnae celebrated its fiftieth anniversary with a major celebratory musical event and a "Garden Party" honoring the founding members.

Altamont, St Barnabas

  • Corporate body

The parish St Barnabas was established in Musselboro, Manitoba, now known as Altamont, on 20 April 1886 by Archbishop Machray. A church was built and consecrated on 16 June 1918 by Archbishop Glover. St Barnabas, from its inception, had always shared a minister with St John the Baptist, Manitou (OW.051) and St Matthew, New Haven (OW.064) and became part of what is called the Pembina Hills Parishes, which includes St Barnabas; St Paul, Clearwater (OW.016); St Andrew, Crystal City (OW.019); St Mary, Kaleida (OW.043); St John the Baptist, Manitou (OW.051); St Matthew, New Haven (OW.065); St Luke, Pembina Crossing (OW.069); and St John the Evangelist, Pilot Mound (OW.070). In 1990, following the departure of one clergyman (the parishes had previously been served by two fulltime ministers) the parishes undertook a Total Ministry program. Sixteen members of the parishes took courses that would enable them as lay readers to assist and at times lead in worship. On 23 February 1992, they were commissioned as lay ministers in a Commissioning Service held at St John the Baptist in Manitou. In Altamont, lay ministers now take morning prayer service and the Priest presides over Holy Communion services once a month. In 2003, facing massive repairs, the congregation of St. Barnabas moved to the Altamont United Church and held Anglican services every other Sunday. On 9 April 2005, Bishop Phillips deconsecrated and secularized the church building. The church was then sold to Robert Milne and Alana Falk of Morden. The altar, offering plate and credence shelf were donated to St Luke, Pembina Crossing. A tall brass cross was donated to St John the Evangelist, Pilot Mound. The Bishop's Chair and Prayer Desk kneeler were given to local carpenter Fred Crampton. The Prayer Seat was given to Gerry Hoskins. Pews were sold to former parishioners and memorial plaques were offered back to the donating families. Several articles were retained by the congregation to be used in their new home, including the pulpit, baptismal font, candlesticks, hymn board, communion vessels, hangings, and a small brass cross.
