Name of creator
The first Methodist services in the new community of Dauphin were held in Halstead Hall by a Rev. Halstead. Grace Methodist Church was opened in 1897. The congregations of Grace United Church and St. James United Church were formally amalgamated to form Dauphin United Church, effective July 1, 1929.
The records of the Dauphin Pastoral Charge came to The United Church of Canada Archives-Conference of Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario as part of two transfers of records from the charge in 1996 and 1998. While the run of Sacramental Registers appears to be reasonably complete for most congregations there are significant gaps in the records of church management, such as the records of the Official Boards, Sessions and the Committees of Stewards. The records of Lay Associations, specifically women's groups, are usually more complete.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of documents created by the congregations of the Grace Methodist-Grace United Church and includes the following series: records of the Official Board, 1916-1929; records pertaining to church property, 1899-1919; and records of Lay Associations, 1920-1929.
