Administrative history

First Congregational Church existed in Winnipeg from 1879 until 1883. The first meeting of the congregational church took place in 1879 at the home of K. F. Lockhart. Early Sunday School and worship services were held in City Hall. A church was built in 1882 on the corner of Hargrave Street and Qu'Appelle Avenue. However, financial difficulties culminated in the foreclosure of the First Congregational Church building by the bank, and the dissolution of the congregation. Rev. J. B. Silcox then raised enough money to buy back the church, and as proprietor he loaned the building back to the congregation. The congregation renamed itself 'Central Congregational Church'.

Custodial history

The records of First Congregational Church came to the conference archives of Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario as part of a transfer of records from the Provincial Archives of Manitoba in 2000.

Scope and content

The surviving records of First Congregational Church include Sacramental Registers, pertaining to Baptisms, Marriages and Burials, 1879-1881; and reference material including photographs.
