Biographical history

Located in the south-western corner of Manitoba in the community of Deloraine, the Deloraine United Church opened in 1925. After a Local Union between the town's Presbyterian and Methodist congregations in 1917, the Deloraine Union Church officially joined the United Church of Canada in 1925. After the Local Union, the former Presbyterian church was used as a high school. Rev. P.V. Samson was the first United minister. Worship was held in the former Methodist church until fire almost completely destroyed it in 1951. A new church was constructed in 1952. A new manse was purchased in 1993. According to congregational minutes, in 1934, the churches of Deloraine and Hazeldean formed a two-point charge, and in 1936, Kirkwood was added. In 1942, Deloraine and Medora amalgamated to form a two-point charge. Hazeldean and Kirkwood were closed following the amalgamation. According to the United Church Yearbooks, however, Deloraine and Medora are listed as separate fields until 1953 when they created a three-point charge with the Otter congregation. In 2009, Deloraine joined the Melita Pastoral charge to form the Deloraine-Melita-Tilston Pastoral charge in the Assinboine Presbytery.
