Name of creator
The Arrow River United Church existed in Arrow River, Manitoba, located southeast of Birtle in the Rural Municipality of Miniota, from 1925 to 1969. In 1925, the charge consisted of Arrow River, Miniota, Two Creeks and Glenlochar. Reverend A. Moffat presided over the charge. Glenlochar closed in 1929. The charge was called Miniota, Arrow River, Two Creeks Pastoral Charge until 1936 when it became the Miniota Pastoral Charge. In 1952, a four point charge was created consisting of Miniota, Isabella, Arrow River and Beulah, known as the Miniota-Arrow River Pastoral charge. In 1969, Arrow River United Church closed and its congregation amalgamated with Miniota. The baptismal font, hymn books and piano were donated also to the Miniota church. The church, located at Block 2, Plan 673, Lot 76, was sold in 1975 to Mr. Charles Bryant of Miniota for $51.
The records of Arrow River United Church came to The United Church of Canada Archives-Conference of Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario as part of a transfer of records from the Birtle-Miniota Wider Parish in 2003.
