Biographical history

Kirkfield Park United Church has existed in Winnipeg since 1954. A Sunday School was organized in the Kirkfield Park district in 1954 by Mr. R. Burrows, student minister of St. Charles-Headingley. Sunday School services were held on Portage Avenue, in the Ladies' Auxiliary Building of the Army, Navy and Air Force. Church services began in 1956 and were held, along with Sunday school services, in the Municipal Hall until 1958. In 1957, the Church Extension Council of Winnipeg Presbytery purchased a site at 472 Kirkfield Street and a temporary prefabricated building was moved to the Kirkfield Park site. The temporary building was dedicated by the congregation in 1958. In 1960, Kirkfield Park United Church became officially recognized as a self-sustaining charge. Construction of a permanent church structure began in 1962, and on February 3rd, 1963, the new Kirkfield Park United Church was opened and the sanctuary was dedicated. On January 1, 1972, Kirkfield Park United Church and Crestview United Church amalgamated to become the United Church of Assiniboia. However, for a variety of reasons, the amalgamated congregation of Assiniboia faltered and a request was made of Winnipeg Presbytery in April of 1973 to reinstate the two separate charges of Kirkfield Park and Crestview, as had existed prior to January 1, 1972. Since then, Kirkfield Park United Church has remained a self-sustaining charge. Kirkfield Park United Church is located at 472 Kirkfield Street, Winnipeg, Manitoba.
