Biographical history

Alexander United Church has existed in the Manitoba community of Alexander, located west of Brandon in the Rural Municipality of Whitehead, since 1925. Its predecessor was a Local Union formed between the Alexander Methodist and Presbyterian Churches in 1919. The Presbyterian Church, built in 1887, continued to be used for the United Church. Reverend H.T. Reynolds was the first United minister. A special service on October 23, 1929 was held to celebrate the addition of a full-sized basement to the church. The church spire was removed in 1955 because of deterioration. The Alexander Pastoral charge included Kemnay from 1925 until 1969, and Roseland from 1952 to 1968. Since 1970, Alexander United Church has been served by the minister at Trinity United Church in Brandon. Alexander United Church, as of 2009, is a member of the Assiniboine Presbytery.
