Biographical history

Bowsman United Church has existed in the Manitoba community of Bowsman, located northeast of Swan River, since 1925. Its predecessor was a Co-Operative Church that was originally Bowsman Methodist Church, built in 1911. In 1925, the Bowsman Pastoral Charge, led by Rev. A.W. Lougheed, included Bowsman, Lavender, Avonlea and Craigsford. A separate building for Sunday School was built in 1966, but, as it had better heating than the church building, it quickly became used as the worship space, and the old church building was dismantled. The Bowsman-Minitonas-Birch River Pastoral charge was created in 1955 and also included Mafeking from 1957 to 1966. The pastoral charge's name was changed to Hillsview in 2001. At the time of description, Bowsman United Church is part of the Hillsview Pastoral Charge with Birch River and Minitonas in Northland Presbytery.
