Biographical history

Greenwood United Church existed in Winnipeg from 1925 to 1977. The predecessor of Greenwood United Church was Greenwood Methodist Church (1915-1925). The Greenwood United congregation utilized the former Greenwood Methodist Church structure, which was built in 1915. In 1952, a new Christian Education building was constructed on the church property. Greenwood United Church amalgamated with Chalmers United Church in 1977, becoming McClure United Church.
