Notice biographique

Gypsumville Community Church has existed in the Manitoba community of Gypsumville, located northwest of Lake St. Martin, since 1933. Margaret Mustard and Annette Sinclair, both Registered Nurses, sponsored by the Woman's Missionary Society, arrived in Gypsumville in November of 1929 to provide both medical and spiritual services to the community. The Anglican minister from Fairford and student ministers from the Baptist, Anglican and Presbyterian Churches also occasionally visited the area and held services in the school or community hall. It became part of the Steep Rock Pastoral charge in 1930. The blueprint for the proposed church building was drawn by a Mr. Horwood of Winnipeg. Construction began on the church in August of 1932 and was officially opened and dedicated on March 5, 1933. The church was named the Gysumville Community Church because it was jointly used by both the Anglican and the United Church congregations. The bell for the church came from one of the locomotives belonging to the Gypsumville Lime and Alabastine Company. Gypsumville Community Church joined the Ashern Pastoral charge in 1935, but became its own Pastoral charge in 1940. The Woman's Missionary Society continued to supply medical services when nurses were available until July 30, 1960, when they discontinued their sponsorship and lay ministers began to be supplied by the Board of Home Missions. Gypsumville Community Church joined the Northwest Interlake Pastoral charge in 1961. As of 2009, Gysumville Community Church and Grahamdale United Church make up the two-point Northwest Interlake Pastoral charge in the Selkirk Presbytery.
