Administrative history

Forrest United Church has existed in the Manitoba community of Forrest, located north of Brandon in the Rural Municipality of Elton, since 1929. Its predecessor was Humesville United Church, which was originally a Presbyterian Church built in 1883. Humesville amalgamated with Forrest in 1929 when a new church was built in Forrest. At that time, it was associated with the North Brandon Pastoral charge, which included points at Stewartville and Zion. Rev. C.I. Mason presided. The pews, pulpit and organ came from the Wesley Methodist Church near Rapid City. Dedication services were held on November 3, 1929. By 1965, there was no resident minister and the manse that was originally moved from Humesville was sold in 1975. As of July 1, 2010, Forrest-Douglas Pastoral Charge amalgamated with Rapid City to form Rolling River Pastoral charge in Assiniboine Presbytery.
