Administrative history

Calvin United Church has existed in the Manitoba community of Rathwell, located southwest of Portage la Prairie in the Rural Municipality of South Norfolk, since 1925. Its predecessor was Calvin Presbyterian Church, built in 1895, which continued to be used as Calvin United Church. It was a separate charge with Indianford from Union until 1960. Rev. J.D. MacNair was the first United minister. Since 1965, Rathwell and Treherne have been linked as a two-point Pastoral charge in the Agassiz Presbytery.

Custodial history

The records of Calvin United Church came to The United Church of Canada Archives-Conference of Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario as part of three transfers from the Pembina Pastoral Charge between 1983 and 2006.
