Administrative history

Culross United Church existed in the Manitoba community of Culross, located southwest of Winnipeg in the Rural Municipality of Grey, from 1923 to 1952. At the time of formal Union with the United Church of Canada in 1925, Culross was part of the Elm Creek field along with Wingham. Rev. J.W. Ridd presided. The church was built as a community church built in the centre of town on Highway #2 on land donated by a Mr. Comrie. The building had structural defects from the beginning and was last used for a Castleton Christmas concert in December of 1944. The church was torn down in 1952, but services continued in the local school until the building was closed in 1967. The Culross congregation continued to operate a Sunday School and formed a United Church Women group as well.
