Name of creator
Durban Presbyterian Church existed in the Manitoba community of Durban, located southwest of Swan River, from 1908 to 1918. Rev. Edward Johnson was the first Presbyterian clergyman to come into the area, preaching first at "Tent Town" near Minitonas in 1898 and then moving on to the area in the vicinity of Durban and Thunder Hill by 1900. The Durban Presbytreian Mission was officially organized on August 5, 1901. The first services were held in schoolhouses and private homes. A church was built in the summer of 1908 and officially opened October 3rd of that year. A Local Union was formed with the Methodist congregation in 1918, which was served by a Methodist minister until the Local Union officially joined The United Church of Canada in 1925 and became Durban United Church.
The records of Durban Presbyterian Church came to The United Church of Canada Archives-Conference of Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario as part of a transfer of records from Rev. Brenda Ferguson in 1984 and from an unknown source in 1987.
Scope and content
The records of Durban Presbyterian Church include records of the Managing Committee and annual congregational meetings (1907-1917); and records of the Board of Managers (1915-1917).
