Administrative history

Central United Church has existed in the Manitoba community of Brandon since 1969. Its predecessors were First, Kemnay, and St. Paul's United Churches and the Pentecostal Church. The four churches amalgamated on July 1 of that year, making it the largest United Church in Manitoba. St. Paul's Church building, built as a Presbyterian Church in 1901, continued to be used as Central United Church. Lightening started a fire that destroyed the church, including stained glass windows and the Cassavant Freres organ, on June 26, 1986. Only the church offices survived. A new church building, located at 327 8th Street, was dedicated on October 30, 1988.

Custodial history
