Biographical history

Harstone Memorial United Church existed in Winnipeg from 1947 until 1991. The predecessor of Harstone Memorial United Church was the Sargent Avenue United Church (c.1946). Sargent Avenue United Church was constructed in 1946 on the corner of Sargent Avenue and Ingersoll Street. The land had been purchased by the Board of Home Missions from the city of Winnipeg in 1943. The congregation of Sargent Avenue United Church chose to adopt the name 'Harstone Memorial' in 1947 to honour one of its founding members, F. S. Harstone. The Harstone congregation organized a 'superstructure' committee in 1949 devoted to expanding church space and in 1951, a new sanctuary was dedicated. The Harstone congregation also dedicated a Christian Education wing in 1965. With the resignation of their minister in 1990 and with declining membership and community support, the congregation of Harstone Memorial United Church was forced to dissolve in 1991. Rev. Garry Loewen held the final services in Harstone Memorial United Church on June 23, 1991.
