Name of creator
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.
The records of Alma United Church came to the came to The United Church of Canada Archives-Conference of Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario as part of a transfer of records from Belmont United Church in 1991.
