Name of creator
Atlantic Avenue United Church existed in Winnipeg from 1927 to 1967. The predecessor of the Atlantic Avenue United Church was the Atlantic Avenue United Mission, also previously known as Atlantic Union Mission and Atlantic Mission. The Atlantic Avenue United Mission originated in 1920 as the Atlantic Mission. The first services of the mission were held in a tent. Soon after, St. John's Presbyterian Church and St. John's Methodist Church took jurisdiction over the Atlantic Mission and it became known as the Atlantic Union Mission. Upon joining the United Church of Canada in 1925, the Atlantic Union Mission became the Atlantic Avenue United Mission. In 1927, the congregation erected a church and adopted the name Atlantic Avenue United Church. Atlantic Avenue United Church amalgamated with Garden City United Church in 1967 to form Atlantic-Garden City United Church.
The records of Atlantic Avenue United Church came to the conference archives of Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario as part of several transfers of records between 1978 and 1994.
