Administrative history

Burnside United Church existed in the Manitoba community of Burnside, west of Portage la Prairie in the Rural Muncipality of Portage la Prairie, from 1925 to 1969. Its predecessor was a Local Union church formed between the congregations of Burnside Methodist Church and Burnside Presbyterian Church. The Presbyterian Church, built in 1910 on the centre of section 35 - 11 - 8, continued to be used as the United Church. The Methodist church was converted into a Hall. Rev. P.G. Langille was the first United minister. In 1929, Bagot joined the charge which already included Edwin and Elsmith. In 1932, Elsmith and Bagot went to the MacGregor charge, and Long Plain joined Burnside and Edwin. A new foundation was added to the church in 1952. The Pastoral charge comprised of Longburn, MacDonald, Burnside and Oakland in 1958. The congregations of Burnside and Edwin merged as 1 congregation in 1967, but ceased to exist as a congregation in 1969. Burnside United Church was sold in 1970 to Mr. J. Dack, and a cairn was placed on the site on October 3, 1976.
