Biographical history

Gunton United Church existed in the Manitoba community of Gunton, northwest of Selkirk, from 1925 to 1987. Its predecessor was a Union church formed in 1912 between Gunton Methodist Church and Windsor Presbyterian Church. It was one of the first Union churches in the Municipality of Rockwood. The Gunton Methodist Church, built in 1907, continued to be used by the United Church. At the time of formal union with The United Church of Canada, Gunton was in a pastoral field with Teulon and Dundas with Rev. James Savage presiding. Gunton United Church closed in 1987. The church continues to be maintained for an annual service, weddings and funerals.
