Administrative history

Balmoral Methodist Church existed in the Manitoba community of Balmoral, in the Rural Municipality of Rockwood, from 1868 to 1925. Rev. George Young began visiting the area in 1868 after his arrival in Winnipeg. Mr. Morrison was the first to be given the responsibility of the circuit north of Winnipeg. It included Rockwood, Stonewall, Victoria, West Balmoral, Pleasant Home, Windsor, Quickfalls (later known as Greenridge), Dundas, Greenwood, Woodroyd and Brant. Services in the Balmoral area were held in members' homes until 1877, when a small church was built on the northeast corner of the Peden farm located on NE 2-15-1E. It was moved into Balmoral in 1884 about the same time that a small congregation from the Victoria district joined them. In 1886 the appointments were Stonewall, Rockwood, Grassmere, Balmoral, and Campbell's. The schoolhouse was later used temporarily for services before a new church was built in 1889. In 1896 the circuit divided into two and Rockwood, Stonewall and Balmoral became the Stonewall Circuit. The Balmoral congregation also included some residents from Greenridge. In 1925, Balmoral Methodist Church officially joined the United Church of Canada and became Balmoral United Church.
