Administrative history

Balmoral United Church has existed in the Manitoba community of Balmoral, in the Rural Municipality of Rockwood, since 1925. Its predecessor was Balmoral Methodist Church, and the Methodist Church, built in 1889, continued to be used following Union in 1925. In November of 1925, the congregation expanded to include the Victoria district and the Victoria church was reopened after not being used since 1917. Rev. J.B. McLaren presided over the two-point field. At first, Balmoral and Victoria were once again considered one congregation, but later they developed into two independent congregations with one Session. Brant / Argyle was added to the charge in 1929. Victoria United Church amalgamated with Balmoral when Balmoral became part of the Stonewall Pastoral charge in 1947. On January 1, 1960, they joined the Teulon Pastoral charge, which included Gunton. As of 2009, Balmoral United Church is in the Teulon Pastoral charge in the Selkirk Presbytery.
