Administrative history

Alexander Presbyterian Church existed in the Manitoba community of Alexander, west of Brandon in the Rural Municipality of Whitehead, from 1887 to 1919. The early Presbyterian worship services were held in the Alexander railway station approximately 1881 with The Rev. William Hodnett as the minister. A Presbyterian Church was built in 1887. Ministers serving the charge included Rev. George Lockhart (1891 - 1895), Rev. C. McDairmid (1895 - 1897), and Rev. John Calder (1898). Rev. George Lockhart returned in 1907 with Mrs. Lockhart as the Sunday School teacher and orchestra conductor. In 1908 a spire with an annex was added to the church building enlarging the floor space for the Sunday School. The Rev. Hyslop Dickson was the minister when Alexander Presbyterian Church formed a Local Union with Alexander Methodist Church in 1919. Alexander Presbyterian Church continued to be used as Alexander Union Church.
