Administrative history

Fort Garry United Church has existed in Winnipeg since 1921. The first church service was held in November of 1921 in General Byng School and was organized through the efforts of Mr. Alexander Baird, an elder of Augustine Presbyterian Church. The church began as a mission church sanctioned by both the Presbyterian and Methodist Churches in Canada and was named 'United Church, Fort Garry'. The congregation held services in Boyce's Store and Fort Garry's Municipal Hall until a church building was constructed in 1922. The church inducted its first ordained minister, Rev. S. C. Studd, in April 1924. The church joined the United Church of Canada in 1925, and began referring to itself as 'Fort Garry United Church'. Though the church did not officially pass a motion declaring their name to be 'Fort Garry United Church' until 1946, the name was consistently used both formally and informally since the time of union. In 1947, the Fort Garry United Church was moved to a new location at the corner of Lyon Street and Point Road and was remodeled and expanded to include a basement/Church Hall. By 1955, a new sanctuary was built and the older building was used for meetings and Christian Education. In 1961, the old church building was donated to the Hungarian United Church and a new Christian Education wing was added. The opening of the new structure was celebrated concurrent to the Fort Garry United Church's fortieth anniversary celebrations. Fort Garry United Church is located at 800 Point Road, Winnipeg, Manitoba.
