Name of creator
Alexander Methodist Church existed in the Manitoba community of Alexander, west of Brandon in the Rural Municipality of Whitehead, from 1886 to 1919. The first Methodist church services were held in the home of Mr. G.M. Yeoman and were conducted by Mr. Thomas Lawson of Brandon. Mr. Lawson was a student who conducted worship services in Alexander and Griswold in 1881. A Methodist Church was built in 1886 with lay preachers, Mr. G.O. Buchannan and Mr. James McEwen Sr. conducting the services. The church was also built by Mr. James McEwen. In 1893 The Rev. J.C. Walker conducted regular worship services in Dalton School for several years. The charge included Alexander, Griswold, Shilo (South Kenton), Rowan(now Bradwardine), and Ryerson. The Rev. J.W. Ridd served the charge until a Local Union was formed in 1919 between Alexander Methodist Church and the Alexander Presbyterian Church. The Presbyterian church was used for the Alexander Union Church.
The records of the Alexander Methodist Church came to The United Church of Canada Archives-Conference of Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario as part of a transfer of records from the Alexander Pastoral charge in April of 1980.
