Administrative history

Greenridge United Church existed in the Manitoba community of Greenridge, located northeast of Emerson in the Rural Municipality of Franklin, since 1925. Its predecessor was a Local Union church formed by Greenridge and Newbridge Presbyterians churches and Woodmore and Ridgeville Methodist churches. The Greenridge Presbyterian church, built in 1884 on the northwest corner of section 21 - 2 - 4E of land donated by Andrew Davison, continued to be used as the United Church. At the time of formal union with the United Church of Canada in 1925, Reverend G.D. Robinson presided over a pastoral charge that included points at Greenridge, Newbridge, Ridgeville and Woodmore. Dominion City joined the field in 1932. In 1958, Greenridge and Woodmore amalgamated to become the Greenridge-Woodmore congregation. In 1959, the Emerson-Dominion City Pastoral charge was formed when Emerson, Letellier and Marais joined the Dominion City, Greenridge-Woodmore, Newbridge and Ridgeville. The congregation of Newbridge amalgamated with Greenridge-Woodmore in 1965 and following a congregational meeting in 1966, the congregation elected to become known simply as Greenridge United Church. In 1968, the pastoral charge was renamed the Valley Pastoral charge and included points at Altona, Dominion City, Emerson, Greenridge, Letellier and Ridgeville. Closures the following year by Letellier and Ridgeville left only Altona, Dominion City, Emerson and Greenridge in the field. By 1972, only Dominion City, Emerson and Greenridge remained. Greenridge United Church purchased the Ridgeville United Church following its closure in 1969 and moved the building to Greenridge and attached it to their church. It is currently used as a Christian Education Centre. As of 2017, Greenridge remains part of the Valley Pastoral charge in the Agassiz Presbytery.
