Name of creator
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.
The records of Austin Methodist Church came to The United Church of Canada Archives-Conference of Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario as part of a transfer of records from the Austin - Sidney Pastoral charge in June of 1978.
Scope and content
The records of Austin Methodist Church held at the conference archives include a Sacramental Register pertaining to Baptisms (1895 - 1901) and records of membership (1894 - 1911).
