Name of creator
The Presbyterian Church became active in the Manitoban community of Blaris, located northeast of Hamiota in the Rural Municipality of Miniota, in 1890 when it became part of the Beulah field with Beulah and the Bird Tail Reserve with Rev. J. McArthur officiating. Services were held in the Methodist church after its construction in 1903. After the church burnt down in 1912, the Presbyterians assisted in building a new church. In 1913 the church was opened as a Union church. A Local Union was forged between Blaris' Presbyterian and Methodist congregations before formally joining the United Church of Canada in 1925.
The records of Blaris Presbyterian Church came to The United Church of Canada Archives-Conference of Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario as part of a transfer of records from the conference office in 2005.
Scope and content
