Name of creator
Elm Creek Union Church existed in the Manitoba community of Elm Creek, west of Winnipeg in the Rural Municipality of Grey, from 1918 to 1925. Its predecessors were St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church built in 1903 and Elm Creek Methodist Church built in 1900. A Union Sunday School had been created in 1913, but it was not until 1918 that the two congregations decided to agree to a "Co-operation." Both the Presbyterian and Methodist churches were used by alternating the location of the services every six months. Both congregations also contributed to the minister's salary. Rev. H.G. Gunn was the first Union minister. In 1925, Elm Creek Union Church officially joined the United Church of Canada to become St. Andrew's United Church.
The records of the Elm Creek Union Church came to The United Church of Canada Archives-Conference of Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario as part of a transfer of records from Amaranth United Church in 1994.
Scope and content
The records of the Elm Creek Union Church held at the conference archives include a Sacramental Register pertaining to Baptisms (1904-1907), Marriages (1906-1922), and Burials (1904-1922) and records of the Joint Committee (1917-1920).
