Administrative history

The Carman Methodist circuit was part of the Wesley Methodist Church in Carman, Manitoba. The Wesley Methodist Church was established in roughly 1880 and lasted until 1925 when Wesley Methodist joined the United Church of Canada to become Wesley United Church. In 1879, Rev. Frank Warne arrived in Carman, then known as the Boyne Settlement, and became its first resident minister. The first service was held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Laidlaw, where Rev. and Mrs. Warne were boarding. Preaching points on the Carman Methodist Circuit included, Carman, Sperling, Elm Creek, Treherne, Holland, Cyprus River, Glenboro and Stockton. A church was built on the west side of Willard Avenue in the block south of Main Street during the mid 1880s. A second church was dedicated in June 1892, but the original church remained standing until it was demolished around 1924. The second church was destroyed by fire on October 3, 1905, after which services were temporarily held in the Opera Hall, and then later in Victoria Hall. The cornerstone of the third church was laid on July 28, 1906 by Rev. J.W. Sparling and opened January 18, 1907. In 1925, the Wesley Methodist Church joined the United Church of Canada and became Wesley United Church.
