Dates of existence


Chalmers United Church existed in Winnipeg from 1925 until 1977. The predecessor of Chalmers United Church was the Clifton Street Church (c.1907). In 1915, the small Presbyterian Church on Clifton Street was renovated and the name was changed from Clifton Street Church to Chalmers Church. Chalmers Church was partially destroyed by fire in 1918 and the damaged portion was restored. The Presbyterian congregation of Chalmers joined the United Church of Canada in 1925. In 1928, Rev. A.B. Baird laid the foundation stone for a new church structure on Spruce Street and Barret Avenue. The first service in the new Chalmers United Church was held on September 30, 1928. Chalmers United Church amalgamated with Greenwood United Church in 1977, becoming McClure United Church.
