Name of creator
Austin United Church has existed in the Manitoba community of Austin, west of Portage la Prairie in the Rurual Municipality of North Norfolk, since 1925. Its predecessor was a Presbyterian church built in 1889. Rev. John A. Beattie was the first United minister. From Union until 1961, the charge included Melvin. The congregation began to discuss building a new church in January of 1955. A new church was eventually built on the site of the previous church and dedicated on June 19, 1960. The previous church was sold to a J. Gilmour for $1000. Austin United Church became part of the Austin- Sidney Pastoral charge on December 31, 1961 with Arizona, Edrans and Sidney. Although the name remains the Austin - Sidney Pastoral charge, Austin has been the only preaching point since 1999. Austin United Church closed June 30, 2009.
The records of Austin United Church came to The United Church of Canada Archives-Conference of Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario as part of several transfers of records from the Austin - Sidney Pastoral charge in 1978 and 1995.
