Administrative history

Austin Methodist Church existed in the Manitoba community of Austin, west of Portage la Prairie in the Rural Municipality of North Norfolk, from 1903 to 1909. The mission was formed in 1892 with The Rev. T.J. Watts, under the Superintendent of Portage la Prairie, as its first minister. The circuit included Edrans until 1902. A church, located on Main Street North (Lots 13 - 15, Block B), was built in 1903, but the congregation was discontinued in 1909. The Methodist congregation worshipped with the Presbyterians until a Local Union was formed in 1917, although some chose to transfer their membership to MacGregor. The church was sold in January of 1913 to a local Masons group, then rented to Sprucedale Industries. It was sold to Mr. Glen Wiebe in the 1980s, and is now a private residence.
