Administrative history

All Peoples' Sutherland Avenue United Church existed in Winnipeg from 1925 until 1970. The Euclid Avenue Institute (which later became Sutherland Mission) was built on the corner of Euclid and Sutherland in 1908. The Euclid Avenue Institute was commonly referred to simply as the 'Institute'. In 1913, the Institute was officially renamed after Sutherland Avenue. Early services of the Sutherland Mission were conducted in Polish. A Tuesday Evening Social and Literary Program was one of the earliest community programs offered by the Institute, along with a Boys Club. The Sutherland Avenue Mission/Institute joined the United Church of Canada in 1925, becoming Sutherland Avenue United Church, though it remained commonly referred to as Sutherland Mission, Sutherland Institute, and All Peoples' Sutherland Avenue. Sutherland United Church, along with Stella United Church, remained under the guise of All Peoples' Mission for the duration of its existence. Stella and Sutherland were temporarily joined in the All Peoples' Mission by both Maclean United Church and St. Giles United Church. In 1967, one of the larger rooms within the Sutherland structure, located at 119 Sutherland Avenue, was renovated into a chapel. The congregation of Sutherland Avenue United Church disbanded around 1970. Winnipeg Presbytery evaluated and re-directed the work of All Peoples' Mission during 1971-72 and as a result, the Sutherland Mission was put on a year to year holding status, while most of the work of the Stella Mission became incorporated under PACT (People Acting on Concerns Together). In the summer of 1972, further meetings were held to consider the fate of the Sutherland mission station. The Sutherland Investigative Group was organized, and the mission evolved into a community centre known as the Sutherland Activity Centre. The building was also later used by the Point Douglas Co-operative as a community centre.
